Mitt Romney’s plan for improving schools

Mitt Romney unveiled a series of changes primarily intended to give low-income families more choices in education and improve schools. The proposal would:

▸ Substantially change how the federal government allocates money to those K-12 schools with a high percentage of low-income children and for the education of disabled children. Currently, that money generally goes to the school districts. Under Romney’s plan, such children at low-performing schools would be able to use that money to attend another public school, charter school, or, if states allow it, private school.
