Defending education choice the right way

Written by Defending Ideas

April 30, 2024

Education choice has exploded in popularity across the nation in recent years. So why does it remain a contentious point of debate in some parts of the country?

Nic Dunn sits down with experts in two states to compare notes on differing approaches to putting more power in the hands of parents to direct how, where and in what way their children learn. Dr. Robert Luebke is the director of the Center for Effective Education at the John Locke Foundation in North Carolina. Christine Cooke Fairbanks is the education policy fellow at Sutherland Institute.

They discuss the similarities and differences between Utah and North Carolina and the states’ education choice policies, and offer a framework for how to further the cause in a productive way.
