School Choice Myths: Setting the Record Straight on Education Freedom

Featuring Patrick J. Wolf, Tim Keller, Inez Feltscher Stepman, Benjamin Scafidi, Corey A. DeAngelis, & Neal McCluskey

School choice has grown a lot since 1990—from zero kids taking public education funds to private schools to over a half million doing so—but progress has been slow. One reason: a constant drumbeat of myths, including that choice cripples public schools, undermines democracy, and leaves poor kids behind. In the new Cato book School Choice Myths: Setting the Record Straight on Education Freedom, top scholars dispel 12 of the most pernicious myths. The book will be officially released on October 7, and several contributors will be available to respond to your questions and comments.
