School choice is a fundamental right of parents, and one that can have a profound impact on educational opportunity. By allowing families to choose where their children attend school, we can ensure that educational opportunities are equalized across the community, regardless of a student’s socio-economic background. This is something we should all be proud of. Moreover, when parents are given the power to choose, they can demand better outcomes from their schools, and the resulting competition will encourage underperforming schools to improve.
When families have a say in their children’s education, true equality of opportunity can be achieved in our public school systems. It is essential that we do everything we can to ensure that all of our children have access to a quality education that will prepare them for the future, and that means giving local parents the ability to make informed decisions about their children’s academic future.
