One of the many complaints against school vouchers -- all bogus -- is that white schools will reject black kids bearing vouchers. Detroit voters have rejected vouchers and limited the number of charter schools. But still Detroit parents are finding ways to get their kids into other schools, including suburban, white-majority government schools that permit non-residential enrollment.
This article explains that of about 100,000 K-12 students left in Detroit, over half -- 51k -- are taking their state money to government schools outside of Detroit's system, with 10k more each year expected to join them. Vouchers would mean that these kids could also choose private schools, including private school built inside Detroit, right in their neighborhoods.
