It’s time for school choice in Texas

Jul 16, 2014 by AFP

We at AFP want to thank our friends at the American Federation for Children and Alliance for School Choice for the public service announcement, “Educational Choice Now”.  The PSA features Hall of Fame football player Deion Sanders and retired-WNBA star and Olympic gold medal winner Lisa Leslie. The PSA released was in conjunction with National School Choice Week and Super Bowl XLVIII celebrations. The PSA features Deion Sanders, Lisa Leslie, Kathie Lee Gifford, Jalen Rose, Lou Gossett, Jr., Vivica Fox, Stephen A. Smith, Keshia Knight Pulliam, “Mary Mary,” Janet Evans, Theotis Beasley, Mary Millben, Laila Ali and Garcelle Beauvais. The message is a simple one: all children deserve a quality education, and their parents’ zip code should not hind their ability to go to a great school and get a quality education.  School choice empowers parents to choose the school which will best suit their child’s needs. As we enter the 84th Texas Legislative Session, we will be supporting school choice – and we encourage you to do so too.  Ask your legislator if they support school choice – ask candidates if they support allowing parents to choose their child’s school – public or private – and allow the education dollars to follow the child to that school.

It is time for school choice in Texas!
