Ed Next editor Paul Peterson and Paul Hill of the Center on Reinventing Public Education will speak at 3:30 today at an event at the Thomas B. Fordham Institute. (Those outside of DC or tied to their desks can watch the event via a live webcast.)
Peterson is the author of Saving Schools: From Horace Mann to Virtual Learning, which chronicles the unanticipated consequences of school reform efforts over the past 150 years and the considers the way in which the school choice movement has evolved.
Hill is the author of Learning As We Go: Why School Choice is Worth the Wait, in which he argues that choice can fulfill its potential if we’re willing to tinker with the rules governing its operation.
Richard Kahlenberg of the Century Foundation and Bill Tucker of Education Sector will serve as discussants.
