Education: PRI’s Second Annual Policy Conference

Education: PRI’s Second Annual Policy Conference


This podcast is a recorded panel discussion from PRI’s second annual policy conference in Sacramento.  The panel focuses on education.  As the attack over charter schools has increased, one false narrative is that they don’t serve the needs of special needs students. To the contrary, school choice options including charter schools give students the diverse educational opportunities they are seeking. This panel discusses the forthcoming PRI book Mia’s Story and the importance of school choice and innovative approaches to learning for special needs children.  You’ll hear presentations from Carrie Carlson, Regional Coordinator for an independent study charter school in Northern California, Sarah Bailey, who started her own homeschool learning center, and Bill Lucia, President and CEO of EdVoice.  The panel was moderated by PRI’s senior director of education studies, Lance Izumi.
