The Future of Education in Illinois: School Choice

Joshua Dwyer is the Director of Education Reform for the Illinois Policy Institute, where he develops and recommends solutions for the problems plaguing Illinois' education system.  Previously, Joshua worked as an Adjunct Professor at Governors State University, where he taught public policy and law.   Joshua earned his BA degree in Political Science, and his MA in public policy degree from the University of Chicago.


Joshua wrote in a recent blog:

Illinois’ schools are failing. Fewer than half of students in the state’s public schools are college-ready in reading, math and science, and 82 percent of Illinois districts failed to make Adequate Yearly Progress last year.

Legislators need to propose bold solutions – policies that will give parents the financial resources and responsibility to choose the right school for their child, whether it be public, charter or private.

Implementing such a system also improves accountability – most parents will not let their children linger in a substandard learning environment.
