Stossel and School Choice

In this week's entry on the public school system, John Stossel addresses the refusal of legislators and educators to try "unproven" school choice.

As we have seen across the country in far too many circumstances, state employees would prefer to keep pouring money into a "proven" system -- that is, a school system that is proven not to work.

Stossel raises a question I always wonder about when listening to school choice alarmists: how could trying something new for our country's educational system possibly be any worse than what we have now? What's the worst thing that could happen? I, for one, would like to find out.
