The reforms to improve the quality of public education that have been initiated on the part of suppliers of public education have been insufficient. Therefore, reforms must be demanded by consumers. Parents should be given government vouchers with which to pay for their childrenâ€™s education and should be allowed to choose the schools at which the vouchers will be spent. To attract students, academically underachieving schools will be forced to improve their academic offerings.
The argument assumes that
(A) in selecting schools parents would tend to prefer a reasonable level of academic quality to greater sports opportunities or more convenient location
(B) improvement in the academic offerings of schools will be enforced by the discipline of the job market in which graduating students compete
(C) there is a single best way to educate students
(D) children are able to recognize which schools are better and would influence their parentsâ€™ decisions
(E) schools would each improve all of their academic offerings and would not tend to specialize in one particular field to the exclusion of others
I would confirm this one by negating the assumption. So if parents prefer sports or convenient location, then the academic institutions would have no incentive to improve their academic offering (conclusion).
