School Choice? But Everyone Would Leave!

Here’s a classic reaction to school choice from an article in today’s Hartford Courant:

“What troubles me about this voucher stuff,” said former Hartford Councilman Steven Harris, “if parents are given the option, they’re going to leap at that, but what does that do for the rest of the kids left behind?”

I have a solution for the former Councilman: Give all parents choice and there won’t be any kids left behind.
