Description

A Free Market for Education?

Charter schools vs. public schools vs. private schools. It’s a constant discussion of who does it better and more cost effectively. With vouches expanding, charter schools on the rise and free education online (Khan academy), does our education need to revamp itself?

We’re taking a dive into the economics of education. What is the impact of the privatization on the public education system and what effects does it have on the different types of population it’s serving.
