July 26
Washington, D.C.

School Choice and Democracy: Friends or Foes?

Policy Forum 
July 26, 2017 
4:00PM to 5:30PM EDT
Hayek Auditorium, Cato Institute 
Featuring Richard D. Kahlenberg, Senior Fellow, The Century Foundation; Max Eden, Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institute; and Corey A. DeAngelis, Policy Analyst, Center for Educational Freedom, Cato Institute, and Distinguished Doctoral Fellow in Education Policy, Department of Education Reform, University of Arkansas; moderated by Neal McCluskey, Director, Center for Educational Freedom, Cato Institute. 
One of the fundamental historical arguments for traditional public schooling is that compulsory common schools are necessary for a stable democratic society. Horace Mann, the father of American public schooling, argued that common schools would force children from diverse backgrounds, religions, and races to interact with one another and receive instruction on proper virtues. Other people, however, believe that allowing parents to choose the schools they think best for their children could improve essential democratic outcomes by forcing schools to compete and to teach more effectively.
Which system is best to strengthen tolerance and civic engagement in our society? Which theories have the most merit? What does the scientific evidence say?
Join us for a lively discussion among the panelists—and questions from the audience.
If you can’t make it to the event, you can watch it live online at and join the conversation on Twitter using #CatoSchool. Follow @CatoEvents on Twitter to get future event updates, live streams, and videos from the Cato Institute.
