Education, School Choice, and Title IX

Parents and students—not government bureaucrats—should make decisions about education. IWF argues for policies that return control of education resources to education consumers, with the understanding that a more vibrant education marketplace will lead to more efficient, innovative learning opportunities. IWF objects to government micromanaging of academia, including their push for a de facto quota system in the name of Title IX.
