The second post in a series, here is the second of the top ten school choice myths we hear often: Myth Number 2 – Educational Choice will leave the most disadvantaged and difficult-to-educate students in the public school system.
We believe, as most Iowans do, that parents are the primary educators of their children and are ultimately responsible for their upbringing.

Myth Number 1: Educational choice programs drain resources from an already underfunded public school system. (“Public dollars for public schools.”)
