In recognition of National School Week (January 21-27, 2024), the Hoover Institution brings together three leading scholars to discuss the current state of school choice in the United States, what the latest school choice research reveals, and what the future may hold as state policymakers continue to expand educational options for parents and families.
Stephen Bowen, executive director of the Hoover Education Success Initiative, leads a conversation on policy, practice and research with featured Hoover visiting fellows Corey DeAngelis, Anna Egalite and John Singleton.
