WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, January 25, 2023, Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Congressional School Choice Caucus co-chair, hosted his 3rd Student Rally at the nation’s Capitol to celebrate National School Choice Week. Sen. Scott spoke to Opportunity Scholarship students from 10 D.C. public charter and private schools as he reflected on the transformational power of educational freedom.
“I’m excited about your future, because you are involved in what I believe is the greatest civil rights issue of our time and that is quality education. If we have quality education in every single zip code, America will be the bright star, the city on the hill, and we will live up to our highest potential,” Senator Scott said during the event.
