Join economist Diana Thomas from Utah State University on July 8th at a Learn Liberty Academy Program to learn more about why education reform is so difficult. The program will include a short set of online videos and lectures on the topic as well as a live Q&A session with Dr. Thomas on July 11th.

 

 

 

Is it unjust that some people receive a good education because they live in a good neighborhood, while those in poor neighborhoods are sent to failing schools?

 

 

 

“School choice” is a means to break free from the restrictive location-based public school system, giving parents the freedom to choose the school that is right for their child, regardless of where they live. Yet, school choice remains a hot button issue that is unlikely to receive much political support, leaving school choice as an option for the privileged few. But why?

 

 

 

A couple of hours during the week will provide you with an excellent overview of the topic and a signed certificate of completion (Certificates only available to US Residents). If you’d like to complete the session with distinction and get special perks like free books, invitations to exclusive in-person educational programs, personalized letters of recommendation, and other opportunities, you might want to commit yourself to about 5 hours a week to make it happen.
