What Should School Choice Look Like?

Cato Institute
1000 Massachusetts Avenue NW

Policy Forum 

4:00PM to 5:30PM EDT
Hayek Auditorium
Featuring Halley Potter, Senior Fellow, The Century Foundation; Michael J. Petrilli, President, Thomas B. Fordham Institute; John D. Merrifield, Professor of Economics, University of Texas at San Antonio; Corey A. DeAngelis, Policy Analyst, Center for Educational Freedom, Cato Institute; moderated by Neal McCluskey, Director, Center for Educational Freedom, Cato Institute.
The school choice debate has largely focused on whether society should have any school choice at all. But not all choice programs are identical. And they certainly do not all produce the same outcomes for students. If school choice policies are to pass, what should they look like? Should we embrace public charter schools, private school choice options, or both? Should financing be through vouchers, tax credits, or education savings accounts? Should funding be public or private? Should the federal government be involved? What types of program regulations promote—or stifle—success? And what does the evidence say about these topics? Join a panel of experts as they tackle these critical policy questions.
If you can’t make it to the event, you can watch it live online at and join the conversation on Twitter using #CatoCEF. Follow @CatoEvents on Twitter to get future event updates, live streams, and videos from the Cato Institute.

Sen. Ted Cruz grills Mark Zuckerberg on political bias

Testifying before Congress, Mark Zuckerberg today announced that he will stop his employees from censoring Trump supporters, Catholics, libertarians, conservatives, Roseanne fans, and others on Facebook. Instead, Facebook will turn to AI, and Skynet will send Terminators to liquidate the politically incorrect.
