The Thomas B. Fordham institute suggests that private schools should administer state standardized tests and expel consistently “underperforming” schools in the choice program. The proposal will restrict innovation and diversity in private schools. Common core has already regulated public schools and if these standards find their way into private schools, there will be no viable alternative education systems.
