President Trump Recognizes National School Choice Week

Published January 24, 2018

Each year, National School Choice Week smashes attendance records from the year before, and this year’s event, going on this week, is no exception. Even President Trump took notice:

Amidst the ongoing political noise and distractions in Washington, D.C., President Trump continues to focus on and address the nation’s most deep-seated problems.

In the wake of signing a temporary funding bill to get the government back open, the president directed attention to one of our biggest problems: Education.

Trump proclaimed the week of Jan. 22 as National School Choice Week. National School Choice Week began in 2011. Trump’s proclamation notes a commitment to “a future of unprecedented educational achievement and freedom of choice.”

We have a president keenly aware of the need to fundamentally change the status quo in our education system. And one indication of this pledge is his selection of Betsy DeVos as secretary of education.

Let’s hope our state lawmakers take a cue from the Commander-in-Chief and see to it that educational choice policy measures smash records this year, too.
