WASHINGTON, D.C. — As National School Choice Week comes to a close, FreedomWorks calls on schools across the country to reopen quickly and responsibly. Laura Zorc, FreedomWorks Senior Advisor of Education Policy Reform and Parent Led Advocacy, commented:
“Many hard working, paycheck-to-paycheck American families have suffered long enough. Since last March they have been forced to make impossible sacrifices for the sake of their children. School closures are leaving the most vulnerable, underserved families to fend for themselves and setting up students to suffer the effects of closures for the rest of their time in school.
“It’s time to get our kids back into the classroom, but moreover, it’s time to give these families the choice they deserve. If schools are going to remain shuttered, dollars for education should follow students. As we continue to live through a pandemic, school choice can serve as a powerful tool to get kids back to in-person learning.”
