Stu Silberman, school choice poster boy

With all the talk in Frankfort the last few years about making school districts set up policies to deal with bullying (a bullying bill was finally signed into law this year after several failed attempts), it is amazing that Fayette County Schools is still asleep at the wheel.

From the Lexington Herald Leader:

The key part is the school's refusal to move the daughter out of harm's way despite multiple requests. When taxpayers can take the public money dedicated to each child's education and move that child elsewhere in pursuit of better results, the system will cease to function primarily for the benefit of the bureaucrats who run the system.
