It’s that time of year again! Our kids are headed back to school and I am grateful that Texas has school choice and that I, as a parent, am trusted to make education decisions for my children.
There are some opponents of parent choice in education who are trying to stifle choice by forcing some schools to close, and that’s not right. It takes away a parent’s choice and could put students back into schools that previously failed them. Virtual school works for our family and my children are doing great! But they want to take it away.
As school choice comes under attack I hope our lawmakers and education officials will defend parents’ rights to make these choices and not fall for what these school choice groups are trying to sell – which is that they know better than parents. They don’t.
My children are not a statistic and don’t belong in a box. They are individuals who deserve to attend the school that fits their needs.
