In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Lennie Jarratt, Heartland Project Manager for Education, and Policy Analyst Tim Benson join host Donny Kendal to talk about a new Policy Brief titled “Saving Chicago Students: Strike Vouchers and SOS Accounts.”
In light of the new strike threat by the Chicago Teachers Union, Jarratt and Benson authored a Policy Brief proposing a new idea that would keep our students safe and in a learning environment. During a teachers strike, strike vouchers would provide a set amount of money per day, per student which they could use to gain access to private schools, YMCAs, or even museums. On day 10, the vouchers would then turn into a Student Opportunity Scholarship (SOS) account. They explain how this plan would not only provide educational opportunities to displaced students, but it may also serve to prevent teachers from striking in the first place.
