Correct — Edexit Is a ‘Crisis’ We Must Not Let Go to Waste | National Review


Writing for Law & Liberty, Harvard history professor James Hankins provides much hopeful news about the weakening grip of the K-12 education establishment on American families.

Here’s a slice: “Not only have parents discovered that getting a high-quality private education for their children is much less expensive than they had imagined. They are also discovering schools that teach a traditional curriculum much more in harmony with their own values. Some parents who themselves began in high school to love great art, literature and music don’t want their own children to miss out on these experiences. Yet now they have learned that the public schools no longer teach such things, or are banning classics once seen as vital to a liberal curriculum and a tolerant society.”

We have a tremendous opportunity here to turn the modest “edexit” into a stampede. Let’s do it.
