Heritage Foundation Announces Web-Based School Choice Clearinghouse

WASHINGTON, APRIL 20, 2005-Parents, students and educators nationwide now have a one-stop location for information about school choice: the new Choices in Education Web page, available through heritage.org.

The interactive site allows users to follow the debate over school choice in real time. It includes all the latest news, maps and research on school choice, along with contact information and links to other education sites.


"If you need information on school choice in America, you'll find it here," says Krista Kafer, senior education policy analyst at The Heritage Foundation. "The online site is simple to use and will help guide policymakers through the often-confusing range of issues surrounding school choice."


The new site replaces a popular book on school choice that's been published in past years. Kafer notes that
the change was needed because the pace of legislative activity on educational choice in Washington and around the country has been moving so quickly.


The Heritage Foundation will publicly unveil the site during a 5:30 pm reception in the Rayburn House Office Building today. But the site is already active, and can be accessed at http://www.heritage.org/Research/
Education/SchoolChoice/SchoolChoice.cfm
.


Heritage will also launch an e-mail alert called "multiple choice" to provide regular updates on school choice.
