Liberal, conservative groups to debate education

LYNDONVILLE, Vt. (AP) Two Vermont think tanks--one that generally leans right, the other left--are facing off for a series of debates this winter on education policy.

The Ethan Allen Institute and Public Assets Institute will be discussing school choice and other education issues.

About a third of Vermont towns—93—have de facto school choice because they have no school and allow students to pick what nearby school they'll attend.

The Ethan Allen Institute's two-member team is expected to push for expanding school choice, while the Public Assets Institute will defend traditional public schools.

The first debate is this Friday, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the Burke Mountain Room on the fourth floor of the Samuel Read Hall Library at Lyndon State College in Lyndonville.
