Sweden Discovers School Choice Works

Sometimes revolutions occur in the most unlikely places. In this column in The Spectator, "Fraser Nelson reports on the radical Swedish system of independent state schools, financed by vouchers, that has transformed the country’s education performance and is now inspiring the Conservative party’s dramatic blueprint for British schools: to set them free."

I was able to visit several schools in London as part of my Master's in Education in 1988. They were already allowing school choice among public schools, and it was a roaring success.
Let's hope the idea comes here, and losens the death grip of the teacher's unions, and give Catholic schools a chance to help poor inner city children to get out of poverty.
