The Texas Public Policy Foundation will host the book talk and signing “Failure: The Federal Misedukation of America’s Children” with author Vicki E. Alger on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at 11:30 a.m. CDT at the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

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.
