National School Choice Week kicks off on January 20, and you are cordially invited to join us to discuss how the history of public education in the United States has shaped an environment in which alternatives to traditional public schools are viewed with intense skepticism, making the United States an outlier among liberal democracies, and what the best paths forward are.
On January 23 in Washington, DC, Lisa Snell, former Reason Foundation director of education and current director of K-12 education policy partnerships at the Charles Koch Institute, will interview Ashley Berner, PhD, assistant professor and deputy director of the Institute for Education Policy at Johns Hopkins University, about school choice and her book, Pluralism and American Public Education: No One Way to School.
Join us as we explore how educational pluralism—what Berner calls “the democratic norm around the world”—could be the best framework in which to find meaningful political compromise around school choice.
Admission to this event is free of charge and requires advanced registration.
