Educational Freedom changes lives. How many Rhode Island families have been forced to move away? How many other American families have chosen not to make our state their home? Rhode Island students and families suffer, because of a lack educational opportunity and economic prosperity. The die has now been cast: School choice is all about expanding educational freedom for families. Those who oppose choice are all about preserving the status quo broken education system.
Let me tell you about someone who has had his life transformed by educational freedom…this summer and fall we have a great intern at our Center. His name is Samuel Adofo, and he is finishing his political science degree at the University of Notre Dame.
Sam’s story is powerful: raised by a single-mom with four other siblings in Central Falls, he credits his early charter school education in New York City for instilling in him the discipline he needed to overcome the obstacles in the sub-standard Central Falls public school system, and earn acceptance to prestigious Notre Dame!
Sam’s passion is education. His career goal is to start and build a nonprofit so that other disadvantaged kids in Rhode Island can enjoy increased educational options.
Rhode Island students deserve the opportunity to achieve their hopes and dreams, this will only be possible if they have the freedom to do so. Your voice can make a difference, please speak out and demand great educational freedom today.
