How do you know school choice works?

More people want to take part.

The Ohio Department of Education says there’s been a double-digit increase in the percentage of applications for Ohio’s school voucher program, two years after Gov. Ted Strickland sought to eliminate it.

Numbers released by the department show 13,064 students applied by last month’s deadline for Educational Choice Scholarships for the upcoming school year. That represents an increase of more than 20 percent from the 10,818 applications received last year.


Strickland has called school vouchers undemocratic. He unsuccessfully sought to scrap the program soon after taking office in 2007.

I’m starting to wonder if there is anything Gov. Strickland gets right.
