Ed On Education

By giving control to parents to choose the school and curricula of their children through absolute School Choice and a voucher system which especially encourages students to study abroad and learn foreign languages/cultures, two massive advantages would result:  1) Students and parents, having both responsibility and authority for learning, will experience a changed attitude and motivation toward learning and 2) They would naturally gravitate toward knowledge that is going to prepare them to take advantage of the growing globalization of the world’s largest, richest, most dynamic, and fastest growing industry in the world—tourism in all its varied manifestations that Las Vegas best expresses.  One relative minor benefit will result:  the public school system will save about $5000 for each voucher it issues.
