Biographical essay
"Bolick is also an author; his most recent books are The Affirmative Action Fraud and Grassroots Tyranny: The Limits of Federalism. One of Bolick's premier passions is school choice. His first battle in that arena was over the pioneering voucher program in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The educrats rolled out all their cannon, but couldn't beat Bolick."
