Inspiration for Joining the Educational Choice Movement  

I joined the educational choice movement because I believe that education is essential for a free society to flourish, but government-administered schooling is not the way to achieve quality educational options for all children. School choice pushes back against the government monopoly by empowering parents with the freedom to choose the best schooling option for their children, ultimately promoting freedom for us all.
