North Carolina’s state House of Representatives voted Thursday by an overwhelming margin to expand the number of public charter schools in the state from 100 to 106. This expansion of educational options, sponsored by a Democrat, creates competition that helps provide opportunities for better educational outcomes at a time when we need them desperately.
Kentucky law prohibits charter schools. State education bureaucrats get pretty squirrelly when pressed about their opposition to school choice options. Of course, we wouldn’t accept similar behavior from a basketball coach at any of our public universities.
