Title: NYT Misleads About School Choice Yet Again
Source: Education News (http://www.educationviews.org/)
Key Points: The author suggests the New York Times has a pattern of misleading readers. In this case, the NYT implies "most economists think a market in education wouldn’t work." Data indicates otherwise. The Initiative on Global Markets survey (http://www.igmchicago.org/surveys/school-vouchers) concludes "36% of surveyed economists agreed that school choice programs would be beneficial–but only 19% disagreed and 37% expressed uncertainty."
Intended Audience: politicians, administrators, teachers, student teachers, parents, students.
Relevance: President-elect Trump seems likely to promote school choice policy.
