January 25-31 is National School Choice Week.
Too many kids grow up in poverty in areas with substandard schools. Education is the key to their moving from their youthful circumstances to successful lives. However, in most locales, students are restricted to attending the schools in their neighborhoods.
Parents should be able to decide which schools their children attend. Every child should have the same opportunity for an excellent education. If the schools in a particular area aren’t adequate, children in those neighborhoods should be able to attend better schools. Even if the schools are adequate, families should be able to choose other schools that better meet the needs of specific students.
