This week on Moving Forward, the Young Voices radio show, we hear from contributors Alexander Salter, Thomas Irwin, Torben Halbe and Andrew Donaldson.

A common objection to school choice is the claim that it will harm rural school districts by diverting students and funds from smaller schools. Alexander Salter explains why rural districts have nothing to fear and much to gain from school choice.

The student debt crisis has plenty of politicians lining up to provide their pet solutions. Thomas Irwin says, if you want to fix the student debt crisis, stop superfluous grad school requirements

No matter how unfeasible a particular utopian policy may be, they tend to die hard. Torben Halbe spells out why carbon neutrality is a pipe dream.

A looming rail strike that’s set to begin on December 9 could add yet another layer of difficulty to our lives. Andrew Donaldson weighs in on the likely consequences if the strike takes place.
