“‘School choice may work in Saint Louis and Kansas City, but it won’t impact most students in the rest of Missouri.’ I hear that a lot. On its face, the argument seems reasonable. There just aren’t that many private schools. They’re too far away. Missouri is not populated densely enough to support a substantial supply of private schools outside of Saint Louis and Kansas City. The only problem with that interpretation is that it isn’t true.” (04/24/17)
