Pete Buttigieg, the Mayor of South Bend who wants to be our next president, has something to say about freedom and the empowering of teachers.
I sure do hope he says the same thing about parents.
If “empowering teachers means freedom” as he claims, it sure does stand to reason that empowering parents also means freedom. The freedom to choose the best educational environment—the right school—for their child.
Freedom is power. And parents —especially poor ones—need and deserve it now.
