Jay Greene says we are "obsessed with the latest policy fashions" and switching our "policy focus so that it is in line with the current administration and congressional majority."
For what do we deserve such harsh criticism? Did we repudiate our previous concerns about the education stimulus? Start celebrating the virtues of "extended learning time"? Decide to push for greater federal education spending for as far as the eye can see?
Nope, we've organized a debate for August on the topic, "With charter schools ascendant, is there still a future for school vouchers?"
We haven't prejudged the outcome; Jay, you shouldn't either!
Details below; come see for yourself. Speakers to be announced soon.
Save the Date!
Please join the Thomas B. Fordham Institute for a panel discussion that will seek to answer the question:
With charter schools ascendant, is there still a future for vouchers?
