Every student is unique, so why are we trying to put them all through the same system?
There are few things that would have as massive of an impact on Ohio as empowering every family to choose the education that best meets their needs.
Ohio needs to have high quality options for parents to choose from: whether that’s public, private, charter, online, or home education, Ohio should be a state that provides educational opportunities that are as diverse as our population.
It’s why I’m such a fan of school choice – and why we’re looking forward to celebrating School Choice Week next week.
CCV is co-sponsoring event next Wednesday evening on the topic – details are above. If you’re interested in learning more and getting involved in the school choice movement, you won’t want to miss this one!
