Questions about School Choice? Get some answers.

Interested in education? Want to learn more about alternatives to the status quo?
Want to have a serious discussion about school reform and education in general? Public Affairs is not affiliated with Illinois School Choice Initiative or with the Heartland Institute, but we think both provide interesting forums for those who want to challenge themselves and others on education and other public policy issues. From time to time, we will include notices of such events, sponsored by organizations who are rooted in a variety of perspectives.

If you have questions about School Choice, the Illinois School Choice Initiative has the answers:
