#AmplifyChoice Atlanta 2015: School Choice, ESA's, and the Economics of School Choice

The Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity is sponsoring #Amplifychoice in Atlanta this weekend.  Featured speakers include Ryan Mahoney from The Foundation for Excellence in Education, Dr. Ben Scafidi from the Friedman Foundation, Virginia Galloway, and Kelly McCutchen from the Georgia Public Policy Foundation.

The attendees of this conference will be visiting local charter schools in the Atlanta area that have shown great academic achievement, and we will be given the opportunity to network with school choice advocates from around the US.

We will also be having group discussions on many hot topics in public education policy, to include tax credit scholarships, legislative battles surrounding school choice, the ethics of school choice, the economics of school choice, and thr rationale for the establishment of Education Savings Accounts.
