Brandon Dutcher: School Choice Will Increase Teacher Pay & Quality

Brandon Dutcher of OK Council of Public Affairs reports:

"During a past Texas school finance trial...Dr. Jacob Vigdor, an expert witness hired by public school districts...", explicitly stated, “'introducing greater competition into the market for teachers will raise teacher salaries...'”

"Dr. Jacob Vigdor contended that Texas should not adopt school choice because districts would then have to pay teachers more. But his argument supports exactly what quality teachers and concerned Texans desire: using school choice to improve the quality and salaries of teachers."
