On a special Short Circuit IJ’s Marie Miller sits down with a trio of school choice experts to provide an overview on where school choice is today. Nicole Garnett and Rick Garnett, both professors at Notre Dame Law School, join IJ’s Michael Bindas to discuss the history of school choice, answer common objections to school choice programs, and walk through some of the litigation that has culminated in the explosion of school choice programs we now see in 2023. The episode was recorded at the University of Notre Dame after a conference celebrating the publication of The Case for Parental Choice, a collection of essays by John Coons and edited by Nicole and Rick along with their colleague Ernest Morrell.
