Patricia Levesque: The only parents that matter are the ones that send their kids to charter and voucher schools.

When you boil it down that is basically what she is saying.
She says parents will hold choice schools accountable with their feet, the
ability to walk away. Well friends what about all the overwhelming amount of
parents that have complained about the proliferation of high stakes tests? Why
can they be marginalized and ignored? If choice is so important why can’t they
opt their children out of the tests or better yet since parents want to get rid
of them, why don’t we?
The reason? Because if we got rid of high stakes testing
then kids would return to public schools in droves. The choice movement cannot
afford to give up their manufactured crisis if they hope to survive.
