Private Schools, Public Vouchers - School Leaders Panel

Private schools and public vouchers: Policy leaders panel

In the spring and fall of 2013, Fordham enlisted veteran journalist and former Dayton Daily News editorial-page editor Ellen Belcher to dig deep into the world of voucher schools across Ohio, trying to understand what happens in these school buildings as the mission to educate is tested by changing demographics and school culture.

Join us, Ellen, and private school leaders to discuss the fascinating findings.
