Does Educational Pluralism Build Civil Society? A Case Study Of Indianapolis, 2001-2019

Key Points

Most democracies support educational pluralism.
Students benefit when we enable schools with distinctive cultures to flourish, and when we hold them accountable for academic results.
No school system is perfect, but Indianapolis’s nimble, responsive approach to education has led to new opportunities for community engagement and investment in the next generation.

We fight a lot about charters and choice in this country, but most democracies support distinctive schools as a matter of principle and practice.
