Become a Voice for Vermont’s School Choice

For 150 years, Vermont has had a unique system of publicly funded independent schools, driven by parental choice.  As more and more states adopt school choice measures as elements of needed education reform, Vermont’s model should be held up as an example for the nation. Instead, our own state leaders in Montpelier are doing all they can to undermine and eradicate this dynamic, diverse, successful gem. These interviews (the first of many to come) tell the story of what Vermont’s “Tuitioning” system offers communities, families, and, most importantly, children.
