That's the goal of the education reformers:
In Michigan, a task force tapped by the governor to reinvent public education has come up with a sweeping plan that would let kids pick and choose offerings from any school that will accept them - so they could take art at their neighborhood school, literature online, biology from one charter school and Spanish from another, with the state parceling out funding to each provider.
Ultimately, public schools might come to specialize, with one focused on science and the next on world languages, said Richard McLellan, the attorney who heads the task force.
Critics often say "the governor is trying to destroy public education as we know it," McLellan said. "That's accurate."
There you have it. The governor's spokesman says it's not the case that they're trying to destroy public education.
But the head of Rick Snyder's vaunted a la carte education task force says that is EXACTLY the goal.
