While many parents can choose neighborhoods with good public schools, many low‐​income parents must send their children to schools with low levels of academic achievement. The movement to improve the educational options of low‐​income children has been met with a barrage of criticism. In this book two veterans of the school choice movement expose in detail what they call the inaccuracies; half‐​truths; distortions; and, occasionally, outright lies that opponents are using in their campaign against school choice. Please join us for what should be a thought‐​provoking discussion about school vouchers and the voices for and against them.
