School choice

School choice and school freedom is contentious in the UK, so how about this for schools legislation:

"The state shall protect freedom of educational choice of a pupil and a parent...The state shall finance education of a pupil from the central budget by a voucher [and] every parent has a right to get a voucher for financing the education of a child who reaches school age."

and

"Violation of editorial independence of school editions and censure of books within the school library shall not be allowed"

and

"a school has no right to lead or control the process of meeting of pupils, parents, or teachers against their will."

Not what you'd have expected from a former Soviet Socialist Republic. Or maybe you would.
