Rep. Joe Sosnowski moderate a panel for National School Choice Week where panelists discussed how to provide school choice options for their children including funding options and the recently passed Illinois tax-credit scholarship program. Behrend and Chartier provided evidence of how school choice works, its benefits, and the future of school choice.
Bruno Behrend discusses the genesis of the words "public school country." He goes on to posit that America is, indeed, a public school country. He then proceeds to make the case that it would be best for America if it were to end its support for public education in its current form.
