Friedman Legacy Day 2014: Are Charters the Next Step for Private Schools?

Following his presentation, we will have a panel discussion with McShane, Corey Quinn, of De La Salle Middle School, and Matt Hoehner, of Educational Enterprises. Quinn and his independent Catholic school were recently featured in an Education Week article because of their intent to become a charter school.

Milton's Paradise: My Friendly Fights with Milton Friedman

TOPIC:

Celebrate what would have been the 102nd birthday of Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman as Mark Skousen relates stories from his long friendship with the economist and libertarian icon.

Friedman was the intellectual architect of the free market reforms of the post-World War II era who today is recognized as the father of the Chicago school of economics and libertarian philosophy. His book, Capitalism and Freedom, has sold well over half a million copies in English and been translated into 18 languages.

Skousen, a former CIA economist, has taught at Columbia Business School, Barnard College, and Columbia University and written for Forbes magazine. He is editor in chief of the Forecasts & Strategies newsletter.

Funded by a grant from The Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice and co-sponsored by Grantham University and the Show-Me Institute.
