ifatAbout Free To Choose: The Original 1980 TV Series:
Free To Choose® is the ground-breaking PBS television series featuring Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist. These programs, filmed on location around the world, have helped millions of people understand the close relationship between the ideas of human freedom and economic freedom. The interaction between those ideas has created in the U.S. the richest and freest society the world has ever known. Milton Friedman sees this success threatened by the tendency in the last few decades to assume that government intervention is the answer to all problems. In these programs, which first aired on January 11, 1980, Dr. Friedman focuses on basic principles. How do markets work? Why has socialism failed? Can government help economic development? The 1980 version consists of 10 one-hour programs.

School Choice: Let the Song Play On

Last week we dipped our toes in the waters of school choice and school vouchers.  Now, let’s put our hesitations aside and dive right in, because just like Mr. Dylan said, “The times they are a changin.” If all goes as planned, our new secretary of education will be implementing school choice in every state in America, not just her home state of Michigan. And still it’s not the idea of implementing school choice or school vouchers that seem to keep a dark cloud looming over the American people but more the idea of this system not being properly executed.

So one has to ask, is it the idea of using school vouchers to create equality in choice for parents, when it comes to their children’s education, or is it Betsy …

Charter Schools Are Boosting Education, Not Leeching From It

Simply saying the term “charter school” in the wrong circle of people can nearly incite a riot and with good reason. Charter schools take away money from public schools and whenever there is money involved, tensions run high. The opponents of charter schools will point to several studies that show they barely outperform public schools. They’ll say that charter schools cherry-pick the best students, leaving the rest behind. What they won’t tell you is how the traditional public education system has underserved a large portion of the community for decades. They also won’t read beyond the first paragraph of the …
