Freedom and School Choice in American Education has just been released. In the book, leading intellectual figures in the school reform movement, all of them favoring approaches centered around the value of competition and choice, outline different visions for the goal of choice-oriented educational reform and the best means for achieving it. This volume takes the reader inside the movement to empower parents with choice, airing the more interesting debates that the reformers have with one another over the direction and strategy of their movement.

Features an important and somewhat controversial essay by C. Bradley Thompson on “Do Children Have a Right to an Education?”
