School Choice in the Land of Stalin’s Birth

Here’s Rick Hess writing at Education Week about education policy in the Republic of Georgia [1]:

The 2005 law on general education, as enacted by parliament, declared, “The state shall protect freedom of educational choice of a pupil and a parent…The state shall finance education of a pupil from the central budget by a voucher [and] every parent has a right to get a voucher for financing the education of a child who reaches school age.” And, just for good measure, showing the libertarian bent bred by close to a century of Soviet subjugation, the law also states that, “Violation of editorial independence of school editions and censure of books within the school library shall not be allowed….”  (HT Bill Evers)
