ON-Lion Letter
Expanding school choice and competition is the most-important action we can take to improve America's schools.  Although school choice faces strong opposition from powerful teachers unions and their entrenched political allies, expanding choice through vouchers, charter schools, and tax credits has repeatedly been shown to improve student achievement, reduce segregation, promote civil values, and facilitate other productive reforms.

In his eloquent new Encounter Broadside, Why America Needs School ChoiceJay P. Greene outlines the case for school choice and shows how it is the most-appealing strategy for anyone who is serious about education reform.

Greene is head of the Department of Education Reform and the 21st Century Chair in Education Reform at the University of Arkansas and a fellow at the George W. Bush Institute at Southern Methodist University.

Encounter Books is an activity of Encounter for Culture and Education, a nonprofit group that is substantially supported by Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, which also supports education projects at the University of Arkansas and the Bush Institute.
