Scott Introduces Resolution Declaring National School Choice Week

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), a long time champion of school choice and member of the Senate Education Committee, today introduced a resolution declaring this week National School Choice Week.

Scott said, “No matter where a child lives, the end goal remains the same: to equip our students with a quality education that propels them to a better future. As a kid who went to four different schools before the fifth grade, I know the difference a stable learning environment can make in a child’s life. That is why I have been such a strong proponent of school choice, and am so proud to introduce this year’s resolution declaring National School Choice Week. I know the incredible results that can occur when we empower our families and children with the ability to choose the type of school that best fits their individual needs and learning styles. Education is a bedrock for success, and we should look to strengthen that foundation by expanding the choices our families have at their disposal. This week let us celebrate every type of K-12 school – public, private, charter school, homeschool, and online – that helps prepare our next generation for college, the workforce, and the amazing opportunities that lie ahead.”

The National School Choice Week Resolution is cosponsored by: Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN), John Boozman (R-AR), Richard Burr (R-NC), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), John Cornyn (R-TX), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Steve Daines (R-MT), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Ron Johnson (R-WI), James Lankford (R-OK), John McCain (R-AZ), Rand Paul (R-KY), David Perdue (R-GA), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Roger Wicker (R-MS), and Todd Young (R-IN).
