Texas Public Policy Foundation
901 Congress Ave.
Education reform expert Vicki Alger offers a comprehensive account and frank assessment of federal involvement in education in her book, Failure. Education policy has long been mired in controversies, often with opposing sides missing the mark. Failure redirects our focus to the big picture, showing us what’s gone wrong over the decades and the institutional causes of these failures. Alger assesses, identifies, and articulates the best strategies for success—namely, decentralizing education policy by ending federal involvement and implementing parental choice for the citizens.

Vicki E. Alger is a Research Fellow at the Independent Institute in Oakland, California. The author of two books and thirty policy studies in education, she received her Ph.D. in political philosophy from the University of Dallas.
Complimentary lunch will be served at this event.
