McCain an advocate of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act also strongly favors a program similar to school vouchers.
“He believes all federal financial support must be predicated on providing parents the ability to move their children, and the dollars associated with them, from failing schools.”

For those individuals in lower socioeconomic areas how are they to move their children to more competitive schools, will bus systems be available or is this more of the Republican Get It How You Live strategy. McCain did not present any solutions with substance but provided a general statement like the one above.
