Media Mention, Forbes: Strong Public Support for School Choice
Cardinal’s executive director, Garrett Ballengee, makes the case in a Forbes piece — authored by Patrick Gleason — that West Virginia’s comprehensive education reform push is much needed and would benefit West Virginians.
“It would be difficult to overstate the opportunities this education reform package would create for West Virginia’s children,” said Garrett Ballengee, executive director of the Cardinal Institute for West Virginia Policy. “West Virginia is one of the few states in the country with no education choice — public or private — and this legislation is an attempt to completely turn that sad reality around. ESAs, charter schools, and open enrollment are all in this legislation, so it has the chance to fundamentally transform the education landscape in this state.”
