School choice gives parents the freedom to choose their children’s education, while encouraging healthy competition among schools to better serve families’ needs.

School choice lets parents use the public funds set aside for their children’s education to choose the schools—public or private, near or far, religious or secular—that work best for them.

Join us as we host The Friedman Foundation for Educational ChoicePresident, Robert Enlow, for a discussion about school choice, its effects thus far in Indiana, and what the landscape is like across the country.

We hope to see you there!

We’ll have drinks and small bites for those who socialize at 6:30 PM, and Mr. Enlow will begin his remarks about 7:30 PM with time for Q&A afterward.

Meet the speaker!
