In 1980, Milton Friedman wrote the book Free to Choose, a classic inquiry into the relationship between freedom and economics. It later became a PBS broadcast series hosted by Friedman himself, and is still receiving considerable attention over 40 years later.

In this show, I’m joined by Matt Beienburg to apply Friedman’s “free to choose” mantra to public education.

Beienburg is the Director of Education Policy at the Goldwater Institute, which was influential in persuading the Arizona legislature to universalize a school choice program that could become a model for the rest of the nation.
