Check Out Our Latest School Choice Project

School choice is widespread in America — unless you are poor. Affluent families have choice because they can move to different neighborhoods or communities, send their children to private schools, or supplement schooling with tutors and enrichment programs. Lower-income and working-class families, meanwhile, too often are trapped with one option — a school in need of improvement.

The School Choice Project works to increase educational options for all kids. Public charter schools (including online charter schools), private schools and home school are options that increase families’ opportunities to find the right fit for their children. These options are frequently under attack by those who represent the status quo. Cascade offers original research and practical arguments to legislators, citizens and the media to promote policies to enhance quality, freedom and innovation in Oregon’s schools.
