AFP-WV: Student Success is Top Priority in Education Innovation Debate

Feb 19, 2019 by AFP

CHARLESTON, WV—Americans for Prosperity-West Virginia (AFP-WV) today issued a statement regarding the evolving conversation on legislative changes in the Mountain State. AFP-WV has been a leading voice in this year’s Comprehensive Education Reform package, with the goal of providing every child in West Virginia the opportunity to receive the education that best meets their unique needs.

A quality education can happen in any school model – including public or private schools, charter or homeschools, virtual schools, and ways yet to be imagined. AFP- WV is hoping to bring all sides together to find solutions that best meet the needs of our communities.

AFP-WV State Director Jason Huffman issued the following statement:

“Together, teachers and families have the extraordinary ability to provide an effective education that leads students to fulfillment and success in their lives. Whenever and wherever we encounter barriers to effective education, we must work together to discover and implement better approaches that benefit and empower both students and educators.

Political affiliations and misguided commitment to standardized solutions have impeded our ability to unite and realize true change for West Virginia’s students, teachers and families. Only by finding common ground and working to meet the needs of all children and teachers can we create an educational environment that prepares today’s students for the ever-changing world of tomorrow. This debate is just beginning in the Mountain State, as evidenced by the widespread support for educational freedom we’ve seen from families across West Virginia.”
