School Choice Could Be Reducing Crime, Studies Show

Published July 27, 2017

More and more studies suggest increased education choice may result in a decreased crime rate:

“There is mounting evidence that empowering parents with educational options can also lead to reduced crime—which is desirable not only for parents but for society at large.

[Three recent studies] demonstrate that allowing parents to exercise school choice reduces the likelihood that their child will engage in criminal activity.

In addition to empowering children with a high-quality education, school choice can reduce crime (and its associated costs) for residents in states across the country.”

Fewer kids in trouble with the law, more kids learning, lower costs for taxpayers? Sounds like a win, win, win … unless you’re a member of a teachers union, in which case you celebrate criminality.
