The parent perspective

One of the central tenets of the school choice movement is that parents should have the right to make decisions about their children’s education.  In fact, this tenet is so central that many have begun referring to the movement as the “parental choice” movement.  We hope, then, that proponents and opponents alike will listen carefully to the experiences and hopes of parents as they consider this issue.

One such parent is Victoria Owens.  The DC Opportunity Scholarship Program gave her the freedom to make choices about which school her sons attend, and, unsurprisingly, she seems to have made an excellent decision.  Read her opinion of the OSP in this letter to the Washington Post.
