School choice is gateway to the American Dream

My parents were extremely hardworking people, but they didn’t have a lot of money. They couldn’t afford to send me to a fancy private school or hire a specialist to help me improve my speech.

As a product of public education, I was able to achieve the American dream because of all the support I had. Ongelukkig, this is not the case for many kids living in lower-income communities.

We need to invest directly in students. This means giving them a choice in their education.
