“Introduction to The Right Idea Season 1: School Choice”

Welcome to Season 1 of The Right Idea Podcast, where we focus on the life-changing impact of school choice in Wisconsin for students and their families. Children don’t have time for politicians to fix broken schools, and that’s the beauty of school choice: a program that enables success for thousands of Wisconsin students each year. 

Join No Better Friend Corp. on our Right Idea Podcast as we take a deep dive into the school choice movement, it’s history, it’s politics, it’s enemies, and it’s incredibly positive impact on Wisconsin’s kids. We’ll talk with parents, students, educators and advocates across the state and country. And we’ll reveal the uplifting stories behind the school choice movement, the hope it fosters, and the policy solutions that will put even more kids on the path to success.
