WAVE 3 News Editorial - December 10, 2013: School Choices

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - New arrivals to Louisville sometimes complain about the perceived uncertainty caused by the Jefferson County Public Schools assignment plan. This is a hurdle JCPS must overcome to get more parents to choose public schooling for their children.

At the same time, parents should consider JCPS offers a nearly unparalleled range of choices for students and families. From career tracks to different styles of learning, students have dozens of specialized programs to choose from for their education.

Study those options now during this open house and school visit process throughout the district, before the application process ends. Public schools, or magnet schools, might not be right for every student. But families should certainly understand all their options before making a decision.

Continued enrollment growth for the district benefits the entire system.
