The Ticket: The Many Faces of School Choice, is a new documentary film that takes viewers on a whistle-stop tour across the United States, asking: “What is school choice?” As the film illustrates, various forms of choice are proliferating around the country, from charter schools to scholarship tax credits. The film finds one simple premise underlying these different models: parents and children deserve the freedom to choose the schools that work best for them. Please join us for a screening of this highly informative documentary, followed by questions and answers with director/producer Bob Bowdon.
