Some Light School Choice Reading

Jay Greene, a longtime education reform researcher and author, is out with a new mini-book entitled Why America Needs School Choice. If you're technologically savvy, we recommend getting your (digital) hands on an e-book copy, which is selling for as little as $4.19. Or, if you'd like to go the more traditional route, has it for $5.99. Here's the product description to give you an idea of what's in store:
Expanding school choice and competition is the single most important action we can take to improve America's schools. Although school choice faces strong opposition from powerful teacher unions and their entrenched political allies, expanding choice via vouchers, charters, and tax credits has repeatedly been shown to improve student achievement, reduce segregation, promote civic values, and facilitate other productive reforms. This eloquent Broadside outlines the case for school choice and shows how it is the most appealing strategy for anyone serious about educational reform.
Greene recently talked about the mini-book in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. You can view it below:
