It's important to remember that a choice is only a choice if you can afford it. School choice was supposed to work by forcing the neighborhood schools to up their game, so that only a few children would have to commute halfway across the city every day. This is a burden on any little kid, to devote an hour every day to travel when they could be learning or playing. But it's especially burdensome on poor kids who have to navigate public transit on their own to get to school, and less burdensome on the rich kids who can get a ride from their parents every day.
