This week is National School Choice Week. To celebrate, Americans for Prosperity is highlighting how education freedom is giving students a brighter future.
Each and every child from every walk of life deserves the chance to get the best education possible, so they can live prosperous lives and achieve the American Dream.
Getting a good education is the first step toward success.

Education freedom has also been associated with higher graduation rates and college acceptance rates.
