Scott Walker casts school choice debate in moral terms. (Wisconsin State Journal, 5/18/2015)
Private school vouchers and charter schools are broadly popular among conservatives who will determine the next Republican presidential nominee. In his remarks Monday, Walker said school choice isn't simply a matter of policy, but a matter of doing what's right.“Every child deserves access to a great education. For me, that’s a moral imperative," Walker told the summit.
