Same old “school choice” song and dance?

Well, it’s “Choice Week” again across the US, a time when the corporate reformers get our elected officials to dance to their tune. For real.

From “Schoolchoiceweek.com:

For the third year in a row, National School Choice Week is excited to announce an official song and dance moves! In previous years, schools, organizations and even public officials have learned the moves to the official dance…

There are about 75 moves in this dance, which they claim is “easier than ever.”

We’ll see. Senator Lamar Alexander, the new chair of the Senate education committee and a former Bush education secretary, is pushing vouchers as well as charter schools, but he’s been singing that tune for a while.

Please read PAA’s “Choice Week” position paper here, for a better set of moves.
