Cambridge School Choice Conference

Wednesday March 2000

This edited transcript of a recent conference addresses the questions raised in the ongoing battle over charter schools, vouchers and other school choice programs. Drawing on both school choice theory and the results of actual programs throughout the United States and the rest of the world, scholars, educators, consultants and public officials, among them the Manhattan Institute's Jay P. Greene and Chester E. Finn Jr., discuss the various aspects of the debate, including the constitutional issues, the impact of choice on the public school system, its effect on students and their families, its promotion of civic engagement, and the future prospects of the movement.
