Free to Choose: Can School Choice Transform Education in Illinois?
January 27, 2015 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
55 E Grand Ave. Suite G6, Chicago, IL
With the appointment of former State Senator James Meeks to the post of State Board of Education Chairman, for perhaps the first time Illinois has an advocate for school choice at the highest level of our state education system.
Is increasing school choice a potential game changer for improving education in Illinois? What form should it take – charter schools, vouchers, tax credits? What impact would each of these proposed solutions have on our public school system?
Join America’s Future Foundation – Chicago for a lively discussion of school choice and education policy in Illinois.
Mary McClelland, Stand for Children
Joshua Dwyer, Ed Choice Illinois
Charlie Vidal, America’s Future Foundation, Moderator
Admission is $10/person, free to members of AFF-Chicago. We’ll have a cash bar (one free drink ticket with admission), complimentary hors d’oeuvres, and a great conversation. Happy hour starts at 6pm, and the discussion begins at 7pm.
