Is Mitt Romney More Progressive Than APS?
It often seems that Progressives and Conservatives are able to find little on which they agree. However, both presidential candidates in the 2012 elections do agree on one thing: parents should have more access to education options.
Barack Obama and his Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, have promoted school choice over the past four years by pushing states to increase charter schools through the Race to the Top program.
Mitt Romney announced his education platform in late May. One piece of the plan that got considerable attention was his push for states to adopt an open enrollment system, allowing students to attend any school, regardless of where they live.
