Roland Fryer’s diagnosis of the inadequacy of half-baked school-choice programs is spot on (“America Needs Real School Choice,” op-ed. Nov. 14). States that wish to provide educational freedom to their schoolchildren should follow the example of Arizona, which last year became the first state in the union to expand education savings accounts to every student.
But even Arizona now spends roughly $7,000 a year for each student that enrolls in an ESA, compared with over $14,000 a year for each public-school student, according to the Goldwater Institute. Politicians who profess to value equality of opportunity would do well to consider allowing each child to pursue an education according to his unique needs.
