To the Editor:

The Commentary by Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware on school choice and privatization was spot on and courageous. His summary of the reasons why vouchers are a bad idea reflects the best thinking of decades of educators and the wisdom of the millions of voters who handily rejected vouchers or their variants in 28 state referendums from coast to coast between 1966 and 2014.

Mr. Markell stands as a shining example for other governors and politicians to emulate.
