Set against the backdrop of a monopoly public school system that
consigns millions of disadvantaged children to educational
inequality, the recent Cleveland school vouchers case, appealed all
the way to the Supreme Court-which on June 27, 2002 upheld the
program in an historic decision-has brought the issue of
educational freedom to national attention.
Some have called it the most important lawsuit of its kind since
Brown v. Board of Education. In this book, Clint Bolick, one of the
premier fighters for school choice in the nation, and counsel in
the Cleveland case, recounts the drama and the tactics of the
12-year battle for choice and, in the process, distills crucial
lessons for future educational freedom battles.
