Hey Family!

School has started this week for my children and they were excited to see their friends from school again.  New classrooms, old teachers, it was as if summer never happened.  For me, not them. They had an amazing summer. I had camp drop offs, after camp study sessions and dance classes to attend.

As we kick off the new school year, I thought it would be a good time to look at how our current education policy is shaping up. Continuing in their vein to “shake up the system” the administration’s education department has been a proponent of school choice/vouchers.  But at what cost? Catherine Brown, Vice President of Education Policy at the Center for American Progress will join me to talk about the current state of school voucher program in the US and the origins of this controversial stance on education.

Adolf Hitler once said, “Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction”. This is what opponents of the school voucher program try to combat against with the new administration’s push toward a voucher program across the US.
