2 Vt. think tanks hold final education debate

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Two Vermont think tanks will be debating the role of government in education.

The Ethan Allen Institute and the Public Assets Institute are holding their third and final debate on the topic on Tuesday in Montpelier.

The will cover the topic of school choice. Organizers of the event say a little more than a third of Vermont towns pay tuition to allow students to attend any school of their choice. The debate organizers say supporters of the practice see it as a national model while advocates for public schools say local schools are the foundation of communities and democracy.

The debate will be held at 5:30 in room 11 of the Statehouse.
