InfluenceWatch Podcast #254: The State of School Choice

In 2022, Arizona passed one of the most comprehensive school-choice programs in the nation. But later that year, the state elected Katie Hobbs, a governor who is backed by the teachers unions, and she has targeted that program for elimination even as other states like Iowa and Texas consider similar expansions to school choice programs.

Joining my colleague Hayden Ludwig and I to discuss Arizona’s proposed retreat as other states advance school choice is Jason Bedrick, research fellow in the Center for Education Policy at the Heritage Foundation.
