  • First School Pulls the Trigger

    Posted by Bruno Behrend on December 7th, 2010 (All posts by )

    The Heartland Institute is “trigger happy” today.  They’ve been one of the few free-market think tanks really promoting the concept of parent empowerment.  That’s why today’s news is so promising.

    The first school has pulled the trigger, and is working to convert “government/education complex” infrastructure over to independent infrastructure.  This is a good thing.

    For more information on how the Parent Trigger changes the dynamic on education reform, check out these links.

    For purposes of full disclosure, yes, I am the director of the Center for School reform at The Heartland Institute.
