Many D.C. children are getting a poor education and are being left behind. Can school choice do what decades of educational reforms have failed to do: Improve the quality of education for these children?
Join us for a panel discussion featuring leading educational researchers, as well as proponents and opponents of school choice from D.C. and across the country, who will explore the impact and potential of school choice—both on the children who participate in school choice programs and on those who remain in failing schools.
What are the real prospects for school choice success in D.C.? We encourage you to attend this important discussion.
