School Choice: Dallas Friedman Day Event!

July 31 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join our sister organization, Americans for Prosperity-Foundation, for dinner at 6:00 and then for a panel discussion on School Choice to follow at 6:30pm.  School Choice is the civil rights issue of our generation!  It’s time for School Choice in Texas!

Milton Friedman personally testified in favor of universal school choice at the Texas Capitol in 2003.  Dr. Friedman told committee members that they should make school choice available to all Texas children, not just a small group of Texas students. Fast forward to 2014, the majority of Texans now favor school choice, with higher numbers among Hispanics and African Americans supporting it at a rate of 80% and 71% respectively. With this shift in public opinion, it is no surprise that the 84th Legislative session may be the year we see meaningful reforms to benefit all Texas students.

Join us for a dinner and casual conversation as we celebrate Dr. Friedman’s legacy and discuss what we can all do to bring School Choice to Texas!
