As an educational entrepreneur, it is difficult to find allies who believe in free market alternatives to government schools. Even libertarian and conservative think tanks often offer educational policies that keep families dependent on government funding and institutions by offering innovative schemes under the guise of school choice. I was so happy to find so many educational innovators that offer truly free market educational opportunities at FreedomFest. I knew they were out there even if they don’t get keynote speaker opportunities or time on FoxNews. Thanks freedom educators for persevering! And thank you FreedomFest for including their voices on panels and promotional events.
