John McCain is telling the NAACP he will expand education opportunities for children in failing schools, including vouchers for children to attend private school.

The likely Republican presidential nominee is speaking Wednesday at the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the nation's oldest civil rights organization.

In greeting the group, McCain praised Democrat Barack Obama's historic campaign, but said the Illinois senator is wrong to oppose school vouchers for students in failing public schools. It is time, McCain says, to use vouchers and other tools like merit pay for teachers to break from conventional thinking on educational policy.
