Research Fellow Vicki Alger, author of Failuretalks about the importance of parental choice in education. Home schooling, Education Savings Accounts, charter schools and school competition are just a few of the ideas in her book that help parents overcome the problems associated with a one-sided approach to education. The federal government has no place in education, says Alger. Parents, not bureaucrats should decide what is best for their communities and their schools.

Research Fellow Vicki Alger, author of Failure, appears on The Joe Pags Show on WOAI (TX)
Posted: Mon. July 18, 2016, 2:53pm PT

Research Fellow Vicki Alger, author of Failure: The Federal Misedukation of America’s Children appears on The Joe Pags radio show in San Antonio, TX and discusses the themes of her new book. The US Department of Education has failed students and parents since it was created in 1979. After spending billions of dollars on bureaucratic red tape, test scores for students have remained relatively flat. Instead of federal bureaucrats making decisions that effect students, Alger says local teachers, parents and administrators are much better suited for making individual schools work better for their communities.

Posted: Mon. July 18, 2016, 2:43pm PT

Research Fellow Vicki Alger, author of Failure: The Federal Misedukation of America’s Children appears on the WFTL radio and talks about the state of education in America. Alger advocates for eliminating the US Department of Education and localizing school management by allowing parents to have a choice of schools—and having schools compete for students. Public schools should not be laboratories for federal bureaucrats, says Alger. She talks about returning to teaching core subjects, not Common Core federal mandates.

Research Fellow Vicki Alger, author of Failure appears on The Bill Martinez Live radio show
Posted: Mon. June 27, 2016, 12:09pm PT

Research Fellow Vicki Alger, author of Failure: The Federal Misedukation of America’s Children was a guest on the nationally syndicated Bill Martinez Live radio program to talk about the ideas in her new book. The federal government should not determine how millions of children across the country are educated, says Alger. Private parental choice scholarship programs are getting better results at a fraction of the cost of the US Department of Education's budget. Voucher scholarships and Educational Savings Accounts let parents choose alternatives to their failing public schools.
