Alan Singer, a professor in the School of Education and an expert on public education issues, weighs in on the public versus private schooling debate in his most recent article, “When It Comes To Public Education, You Get What You Pay For,” published on the Daily Kos.

January 21-27 is “School Choice Week,” a multi-million dollar national campaign advocating for the right of families to choose between public and private schooling. Professor Singer questions the motives and implications behind this campaign, stating “They are calling for ‘choice’ when their real goal is to replace public education with privatized systems. If they succeed and public schools are decimated, there will be no real choice.”
