I believe freedom and opportunity are what define America. These fundamental principles are what make our nation the greatest in the world. But America’s current educational system lacks freedom. A quality education is the closest thing to magic in America. As someone who grew up with a single mom, in a family mired in poverty, I understand the power of a good quality education. Every child – no matter their zip code – should have access to an education that sets them up to live out their version of the American Dream. That’s why millions of families have turned to the high-quality education provided by charter schools to offer a better future for their child. When parents have the choice to send their child to a school that best fits their needs, their kids have the best opportunity to succeed.
