Schools are closed, kids are learning at home, and everything we usually argue in education policy is upended. So, does the idea of school choice still make sense as a policy (especially when schools aren’t even open)?

What becomes of the school choice debate, and school choice advocates under our current circumstances? Jeanne Allen of the Center for Education Reform joins the Education Is Power Broadcast to discuss where we go from here.

Allen talks about how her life experiences, along with witnessing inequity in education led her to fight for expanded educational options for all families. Watch the video above and leave a comment on what you see as the future of school choice.
