Breaking Free: Public School Lessons and the Imperative of School Choice

Monday May 2003


Sol Stern Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institute

When Mayor Rudolph Giuliani came out in support of vouchers for poor children several years ago, he cited Sol Stern’s articles in City Journal. Now, in his new book, Stern shows us that school choice is not only the new civil rights movement for our time, but key to improving our public schools. Drawing on autobiography and intimate conversations with parents, students and educators ranging from New York to the Midwest, Breaking Free is the first book to transform school choice from an abstract policy question into a real-life narrative about the educational needs of all our children.
