With education options more diverse than ever, some parents are eschewing the standard public school system.  With this choice, comes the debate on where taxpayer dollars should be going.

On Wednesday's Central Standard, we'll discuss school choice with Lisa Graham Keegan, CEO of the Education Breakthrough Network, and David Smith, Chief Of Staff at Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools.

They will explore the options parents have in alternative education, and look ahead to National School Choice Week, January 27nd - February 2nd.
