Education Next’s Paul Peterson and Chester E. Finn, Jr. talk this week about a new Fordham Institute report identifying 2800 public schools that only prosperous kids can attend. A more choice-based public school system, an idea endorsed in a new Brookings Institution report, would provide more opportunities for poor kids to attend better schools, they note.
