Inspiration for Joining the School Choice Movement
I grew up in a home where education was paramount. I was also fortunate that my parents could afford to live in a suburb with a great public elementary school, and that they had the resources to pay for private school tuition. Not all children are so fortunate. It seemed to me that America’s commitment to justice and equality of opportunity required that we do more to expand educational opportunities for all children.
