In this AEI Events Podcast, Gov. Jeb Bush joins AEI’s Nat Malkus for a wide-ranging discussion on the need for disruption and innovation in our education system. The landscape of school choice has changed significantly in recent decades, and there is a pressing need for a variety of educational choice options.
In 2011, Arizona became the first state to enact an education savings account (ESA) program, a new form of school choice that provides public funds to parents so they can decide how and where to educate their child. Five other states have enacted ESA programs since then, creating a new environment of educational choices around the country. As these programs develop, however, scholars, advocates, and educators must consider how ESAs alter other educational delivery systems and interact with education providers, existing private school choice programs, and the families and students who rely on them.
This event included a panel moderated by Gerard Robinson and AEI’s Nat Malkus; featuring Gov. Jeb Bush, along with Darrell Allison, Jonathan Beckham, Lindsey Burke, and Adam Peshek.
Nat Malkus kicks off the event (0:54), Jeb Bush gives his keynote address (6:05), Nat begins a discussion with Jeb (19:23), the panel joins the discussion (40:34), and audience Q&A (1:25:02).
This event originally took place on January 26, 2018.
