Educational change; Education--Minnesota
Recent Minnesota experience shows that it is possible to make rapid, significant improvement in our public schools. Despite the skepticism of some and opposition of others, Governor Perpich's school choice initiatives helped thousands of youngsters, while not producing the chaos opponents predicted. This paper argues that we should build on the success of recent reforms to rethink the roles of parents and students in our schools. While Minnesota has the nation's highest graduation rate and above-average test scores, additional reforms are necessary if we are to continue to make economic and social progress.
