Growing up, my mother worked tirelessly to make sure I went to private schools my entire life. Once I went to college and became a tutor, I noticed distinct differences in the quality of education received amongst my students. As an undergraduate, I began to think about how economic principles could be applied to education. After further research, I arrived at the belief that school choice is the path to increasing the quality of education for everyone.
