July 31, 2013 would have been Milton Friedmanís 101th birthday. To honor his vision and the impact he has had on our society, we have collaborated with policy groups from around the world to hold events in his honor.
Milton Friedmanís contribution to 20th century economics is indisputable. But economics isnít the only area where he had a vested interest. Friedman had a vision for transforming education through free market principles.
Join us for a provocative discussion of Milton Friedman's ideas on education policy with the John Locke Foundation's Director of Research and Education Policy Studies, Dr. Terry Stoops.
Before joining the Locke Foundation, Dr. Terry Stoops worked as the program assistant for the Child Welfare Education Programs at the University of Pittsburgh. After crossing the Mason-Dixon Line, he taught English at Spotsylvania High School and served as an adjunct instructor in professional communication at the University of Mary Washington. He was a research assistant in the Department of Leadership, Foundations, and Policy at the Curry School of Education, University of Virginia.
Stoops earned a bachelor's degree in speech communication from Clarion University and a masterís degree in Administrative and Policy Studies from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Education. He received a Ph.D. in Social Foundations of Education from the University of Virginia, Curry School of Education.
