Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“No one knows this legal battle better than Clint, and his successes are victories for both our education system and our children.” William J. Bennett, former Secretary of Education
“Clint Bolick is the new Thurgood Marshall. Marshall litigated the end of legal apartheid, Bolick the demolition of educational townships.” John Gardner, Milwaukee School Board
“Clint makes clear how high the stakes are for the youngsters in low-income families condemned to failing government schools and how much their parents are willing to sacrifice to rescue them. A true human interest tale.” Milton Friedman
“Clint Bolick confounds his liberal critics because he is something that is not supposed to exist on the Right: an idealist. Nina Easton, author of Gang of Five: Leaders at the Center of the Conservative Crusade
