The DePauw Civic Fellows are pleased to announce a talk on school choice by Kevin Teasley, president and founder of the Indiana-based Greater Educational Opportunities (GEO) Foundation.

Teasley will deliver thoughts on “Why Choice Works” on Monday, Oct. 8, beginning at 8 p.m. in Watson Forum of the Pulliam Center for Contemporary Media. The event is free and open to all.

Greater Educational Opportunities (GEO) Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports all quality means of education including public, private, charter, religious and home. In its belief that multiple choices will strengthen all schools it is both an advocate for choice and a resource for parents seeking to provide their children with the best educational option.

GEO provides parent outreach programs, sponsors charter schools, provides a state-approved tutoring program, and sponsors the Charter School Service Center to help charter schools succeed.

Educational choice is a prominent topic in current politics and in our society. Teasley will be providing information and experience that will be of interest to both those with a position on school choice and those new to the topic.
