The Writings series contains Lytle's writings divided into two subseries, Published and Unpublished. The Published subseries includes copies of Lytle's articles from the Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press, and Education Week, 1987 through 1993; a copy of his book, Liberty Schools: A Parent's Voucher Plan; a 1974 booklet entitled Property Tax Cut & School Vouchers; and a series of columns for The Eccentric Newspapers entitled "Liberty Schools," also from 1974. The Unpublished subseries contains numerous articles, essays, and proposals by Lytle, the majority in draft form and dating from 1988 through 1992. One folder contains articles addressing Michigan educational issues in particular. The Unpublished subseries also contains proposals and drafts from 1990 through 1993 of Lytle's unfinished manuscript" Schooling's Revolution," a book length work on how to improve America's education system through privatization, parental choice, and increased technology in the classrooms. Of note in this subseries are the several partial drafts with extensive margin notes and commentary most likely by Milton Friedman.
