"There is a difference between public choice and privatized choice. The thinly veiled agenda of privatized choice is the destruction of public schools, which Betsy DeVos and her allies refer to as “government schools.” What the privatizers never talk about is that every dollar that goes to school choice is taken away from public schools. To adjust for the loss of revenue, public schools have to lay off teachers and close down programs. So the great majority of students are injured so a few can attend a charter or use a voucher.Unaccountable, unsupervised privately-managed schools waste taxpayers' dollars with bloated administrative salaries and overhead. Without public oversight, fraud and corruption go undetected, and hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars are often squandered or stolen. Voucher programs almost always begin small, but then expand to apply to all students."
