Teacher Choice states that it is "an information service of the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution," but none of the links on the project page work as of January 10, 2008. [1] In July 2002, founder and chairman Gregory Fossedal referred to Teacher Choice as "an association of teachers in 38 states active in speaking out on education issues." [2]
