It‘s National School Choice Week!

by Lee Schalk / /

As we celebrate School Choice Week, we recognize that the key to economic prosperity and a brighter future is through empowering parents and giving children a first-rate education, not mindlessly throwing money at ineffective public school systems when they fail to deliver.

This past November, we saw yet another attempt at tax hikes for education; this time in Colorado. Fortunately, taxpayers rallied against the multi-billion dollar income tax hike and defeated Amendment 66 by a 3 to 1 margin. Coloradans—and millions of Americans—understand that our children deserve an approach to education that stresses increased accountability, more choice, additional parental control, and better use of our tax dollars.

Thanks to the hard work of school choice supporters, we’ve seen greater utilization of charter schools, tuition tax credits, and school vouchers. This has led to countless success stories in numerous cities and states. For the sake of America’s future, let’s keep that momentum going.

If you’re local to the DC area, please join us tonight at The Lighthorse in Alexandria, VA for a special School Choice Happy Hour. More info can be found HERE.
