Rachel McGuire is correct when she writes:
The answer is obvious: We shouldn’t deny any parent – or any child – the benefits of school choice. That’s what National School Choice Week is all about. As we gather this week (through Jan. 28), let us reaffirm the value that comes with opportunity and pledge to continue our work to extend that value to every child in Rhode Island.
Stop by the State House this afternoon to see what school choice is already available in Rhode Island and to hear how more could benefit the state. This is an issue that should cross ideological and partisan lines. Indeed, it’s only not obvious because the special interests that benefit from the status quo are so well funded (at taxpayer expense).
