NYT Misleads About School Choice Yet Again

Title: NYT Misleads About School Choice Yet Again

Source:  Education News (


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 ( 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.
