Parental choice in education is about giving every child the chance to learn in a school that is the right fit for him or her.
In recent years, Arizona’s traditional public and charter schools have made remarkable progress, and the state’s expansion of educational choice has been a major contributor. ExcelinEd’s Dr. Matthew Ladner has witnessed this transformation firsthand, as a parent of three Arizona students and as a policymaker. Last week, the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s bestowed their Milton Friedman Award upon Dr. Ladner, recognizing his work to expand parental choice in their state.
Check out Dr. Ladner’s recent post on J. P. Greene’s blog to learn more about the effects of parental choice in Arizona and why it is so important for our nation’s families.
