FreedomWorks Statement in Response to President Trump’s Executive Order on Hispanic American School Choice

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to President Trump signing an executive order that furthers the school choice movement, specific to Hispanic Americans, Sarah Anderson, FreedomWorks Director of Policy, commented:

"We applaud President Trump’s consistent leadership and focus on school choice. As he has said, school choice is the civil rights issue of our time.

“So much of our youth’s future is directly tied to having access to an education that suits their needs. These often are not the same as the needs of teachers’ unions and governmental bodies that run public schools.

"This executive order furthers this simple truth that resonates with American parents across the country: Schooling should focus on the students, not the system. Americans should be grateful for elected officials willing to work towards making this noble goal a reality."
