Educational Choice

The Acton Institute recognizes the importance of a sound educational system to the future prosperity of a nation and its workforce. We promote increased competition and parental involvement in educational decision making. The Institute proposes a competitive system of choice for education that would offer a variety of school concepts as options from which families can choose, thus exercising their God-given rights as primary educators of children. Competition, we predict, will lead to the improvement of all schools, as each school will seek to increase its effectiveness, innovation, and additional services in order to attract more students.
