Many of you who subscribe or pick up Reason on the newstands saw Let a Thousand Choices Bloom. Reason tapped a panel of the nation's preeminent education experts, starting with Mrs TWC, and asked for insights into education reform in America.
Fifty years after Milton Friedman first proposed the idea of education vouchers, school choice proposals come in all shapes and sizes. We asked a dozen experts what reforms they think are most necessary and promising to improve American education. We also asked them to identify the biggest obstacles to positive change.
As an aside, I always find it interesting that so many people who identify themselves as Pro-Choice cast their lots with the No-Choice, public school monopoly crowd when it comes to education. Mandatory is the Mantra. Hmmm. Odd.
And, courtesy of Liberty Fund and IHS, Mrs TWC is being pampered with an all-expense-paid weekend in Washington DC where she and about a score of others will spend the weekend kicking around the ideas of Frederich Hayek, author of The Fatal Conceit and The Road to Serfdom. I know, it's a tough break, but she's dedicated.
