WATCH: 5 Ways States Are Empowering Families With School Choice

Every month, The 74 launches a new explainer video for parents, defining and deciphering clunky ed policy terms in a way that an average mom and dad can understand.

3. A primer on school vouchers

4. Instant Expert: Education Savings Accounts in 2 minutes or less

5. Defining ‘open enrollment’
