Education Entrepreneur Freedom Index

In response to the growing demand for alternative education options that cater to the individual needs of children, education entrepreneurs (also known as “edupreneurs”) are developing unconventional learning environments. These range from microschools and homeschool co-ops to tutoring centers and learning pods.

The Education Entrepreneur Freedom Index aims to identify how regulations impact edupreneurs and to highlight key differences among states. It is not a legislative roadmap but rather a first step toward a deeper understanding of how regulations create unnecessary barriers for unconventional learning environments. We hope that it will inspire a re-examination of certain regulations and lead to policy changes that promote innovation and access to diverse educational options.
