    Last Friday I was overflowing with enthusiasm at the kickoff of the 5th annual National School Choice Week.

  • Snow or Not, Let’s Keep Sharing School Choice Wishes for 2015 and Beyond0

    Last week, I gave you quick rundown (okay, it wasn’t that quick) of two big charter reports.

  • It’s Good to Let Teachers Choose, Too: Because One Size Doesn’t Fit All0

    • December 4, 2014

    We often talk about the value of educational choice for students and parents, and rightly so. Less frequently do we strike the theme of the importance of letting teachers choose. As I am fond of doing, a spate of recent stories today presents me with the opportunity to tie this theme together with a big […]
