Democratic Party on School Choice


U.S. needs public school accountability, not vouchers

The Democratic Party supports expansion of charter schools, magnet schools, site-based schools, year-round schools, and other nontraditional options. Public schools should have the freedom to design their curriculum within standards and should compete for students. What America needs are public schools that compete and are held accountable for results, not private school vouchers that drain resources from public schools and hand over the publicís hard-earned tax dollars to private schools.
