Celebrate National School Choice Week

January 25, 2016

National School Choice Week kicked off on Sunday, celebrating families’ freedom to choose how and where their children learn.

There is a lot to cheer about. Education savings accounts are now law in five states and under consideration in more than a dozen more. Half of all U.S. states allow parents to choose a public or private school using a scholarship, while policymakers in 42 states and Washington, D.C. allow teachers, parents, and community leaders to form charter schools (and lawmakers in Washington state are desperately trying to restore their law).

From improved high school graduation rates to higher future earnings, these choices are giving students around the country a chance at the American Dream.
