You are a bad person if you send your children to private school. Not bad like murderer bad—but bad like ruining-one-of-our-nation’s-most-essential-institutions-in-order-to-get-what’s-best-for-your-kid bad. So, pretty bad.

So writes Allison Benedikt in Slate this week.

James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute offers a rebuttal:

Aren’t the "bad people" — to use Allison Benedikt’s language — here the ones who would trap lower-income and poor kids in their local education monopoly? Or as Alex Tabarrok puts it: "Barricading parents into the poor schools their government offers them is like barricading people into communist East Germany."
