Sheldon Richman and David Boaz: The Abolition of Public Schooling

Sheldon Richman is the editor of The Freeman (a magazine published by the Foundation for Economic Education), a senior fellow at the Future of Freedom Foundation, and a research fellow at the Independent Institute.

David Boaz is the executive vice president of the Cato Institute, and is the author of Libertarianism: A Primer and The Libertarian Reader (1997) and The Politics of Freedom (2008).

In this video from a Future of Freedom Foundation event in 1996, Richman and Boaz discuss the reception of Richman’s 1994 book, Separating School and State, and talk about what a free market in education would look like and how America can move in the direction of educational freedom.
