my child. if they've don't have that choice, and they are assigned to that school, they are stuck there. i am fighting for the parents who don't have those choices. we need all parents to have those choices. >> are you sure about your answers on those? which one is bigger than the other? >> oh. >> the question does her solution work? do choice schools perform better than public schools? naturally, there are conflicting studies. it's complicated. >> does that represent 3/9? >> i think so. >> i think you are right. >> devos spends a lot of time showcasing schools like cold spring elementary, public school in indianapolis allowed to get rid of local teachers union. and create an innovative curriculum. but when parents choose these
options, taxpayer funds follow the child. >> here, can i help you. >> that means that the public school left behind can end up with less money. >> why take money away from that school, that's not working, to bring them up to a level where they are, that school is working. >> well we should be funding and investing in students. not in school, school buildings, not in, institutions, not in systems. >> okay, but what about the kids who are back at the school that is not working. what about those kids? >> in places where is a lot of choice that's been introduced, florida for exam pull, the studies show that when there is a large number of of students that opt to go to a different school or different schools, the traditional public schools actually the results get better as well. >> has that happened in michigan. we're in michigan, your home state? >> yes, there is lots of great
options and choices. >> have the public schools in michigan gotten better? >> i don't know, overall i can't say overall that they have all gotten better. >> the whole state is not doing well? >> well there are certainly lots of pockets where, where the students are doing well. >> but your argument if you take fund away that the schools bill get better is not working in michigan. where you had a huge impact and influence over the direction of the school system here. >> i hesitate to talk about, all schools in jen ram. because schools are made up of individual students attending them. >> the public schools here are doing worse than they did? >> michigan schools need to do better. there its no doubt about it. >> have you seen the really bad schools? maybe try to figure out what, what, they're doing? >> i have not, i have not i have not intentionally visit itted schools that are underperforming. >> maybe you should. >> maybe i should. yes. >> you can see the full report on our website.
