    The concept of school choice ultimately only reinforces disparity in our school system. It not only acknowledges that some schools are better than others, but tactfully encourages such to continue. Whenever someone is moving into a neighborhood, if they ask "what are the best schools" the answer needs to be "the local school" no matter where they are. They all need to be equally the best.

    Shelby County boasts the largest number of failing schools in Tennessee. Children are consigned by law to attend these schools. They need to be able to choose other, more successful schools, whether public or private. If we are to reverse the economic fortunes of these children, we must act now.

    Parents are the primary educators of their children. Vouchers will empower those that engage their duties to educate their children and create a free-market that is responsive to the individual needs of children. Top-down control spreads mediocrity. Also, we must keep curriculum decentralized to prevent it from being used to control our children's fact base and thought process.
