McShane, Michael Q. – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
In education policy, conservatives have often been more identifiable by what they are against than what they are for. Ronald Reagan ran in 1980 promising to eliminate the Department of Education, and since then, numerous conservative politicians have stated they wish to do the same. At times, conservatives have been known to support school choice…

Brickman, Michael – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
Education reformers have spent decades doggedly working to improve student outcomes in K-12 education by championing policies spanning federal, state, and local jurisdictions.

Pondiscio, Robert; Schirra, Tracey – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
