We get a remark from Congressman Gary Palmer of Alabama this morning, fresh out of Committee on the record on his work to get funding for the children of low-income families to have an equal chance at attending a private school in Washington, District Of Columbia if they so choose. So more school choices no matter what their economic status. I would say this is a rather excellent goal by Gary.
"Ensuring our children receive a good education is essential, both for each individual child & for the future of our nation. But for many of our most disadvantaged children, a clear pathway to receiving a good education is hampered by being unable to choose the school that is right for them."
