This week...

  • As kids in D.C. and around the country are preparing to head back to school, the topic of education reform is once again on our minds. Emily and Tommy sit down with Lindsey Burke, Director of the Center for Education Policy at the Heritage Foundation, to discuss the future of school choice and what Congress can do to improve education for all students.
  • Education choice empowers families because they get to decide where their dollars go. It is important to avoid creating new federal tax credit scholarships that make private schools dependent on the federal government.

For some background...

  • Read why school choice is not a federal issue, and why states are much more equipped to shape these programs.
  • Learn more about growing evidence that supports school choice.
