The parent of every school

The parent of every school age child should receive a voucher. This voucher would be in the amount of funds allocated today per student in the public school system. The parent could then choose where to send their child to school be it public school, private, parochial school, academy. More charter schools would be founded. These schools, public and private would in essence compete for students. The schools that provide the best bang for the parent's buck --- the best schools will win out ---- but, it will force all schools to look at what they're doing and make improvements to try to attract more students if they want to stay in business.
