David G. Jorgensen, the Vice Chairman of the Pennsylvania-based non-profit organization, Free to Choose, advocates an educational approach for students based on reasoning and reliable information. Free to Choose encourages students to analyze issues that affect the world as a means to protect liberty and enhance knowledge. The organization places emphasis on learning about historical events and societal changes from knowledgeable experts, debating different viewpoints, and reflecting on the meaning and importance of episodes that shaped the world experience. By becoming participants in their own education, students foster critical thinking skills and develop enhanced knowledge and understanding of their world. Free to Choose promotes in-depth study by encouraging students to read and listen to discourse on subjects by experts. Students develop personal opinions by actively learning rather than passively listening.
The non-partisan Free to Choose network offers access to some of the world’s most celebrated people and their ideas in an entertaining format. Designed to provide delivery of information without political or social bias, Free to Choose includes content on topics such as history, economics, and constitutionality.
