Indianapolis, IN — As efforts to reform education and improve learning spring up across the nation, the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice announced a new on-line information hub for advocates, parents and concerned citizens: the Friedman Flyer.
The Friedman Flyer, FriedmanFlyer.com, will advance Milton and Rose Friedman’s vision of school choice for all with daily updates on news and lively discussion centering on education reform and school choice.
“We want to provide a forum to highlight what works in the world of school choice, and also where the challenges lie,” said Abdul Hakim-Shabazz, who will manage the Friedman Flyer. “We’re also not above calling out those who stand in the way of better education options for America’s children.”
Along with the Friedman Flyer, the Foundation launched a corresponding Twitter account: @EdChoice.
“Milton and Rose Friedman years ago established the vision of universal choice for all children,” said Robert C. Enlow, president and CEO of the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice. “That goal is as vital today as it was then, and the Friedman Flyer will be a powerful platform for promoting the Friedmans’ vision.”
The launch of the Friedman Flyer is timed to coincide with National School Choice Week (Jan. 22 - 28), which will shine a spotlight on the need for effective options for all children, including great public schools, public charter schools, private schools, virtual schools, and homeschooling.
