Our old, exclusionary, geographically-based education system is not educating children the way it promises to. Parents have been fighting for the ability to get their kids into schools that don’t constantly fail them decade after decade, only to be denied by the public education establishment, and the various policies promoted by the school choice movement give parents autonomy over their children’s education.
Joining The Brian Nichols Show today is Michael Torres from the Commonwealth Foundation. Michael is the Senior Communications Office over at the Commonwealth Foundation and joins the show to help dispel some myths regarding school choice and to speak to the value that school choice has in helping further our youths' education.
