Sens. Paul, McConnell, Alexander, and Scott Host ‘Success for Our Children: A Forum on School Choice’

August 1, 2013 in Politics & Elections

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Tuesday, July 30, Sen. Rand Paul hosted a school choice forum, ‘Success for Our Children: A Forum on School Choice,’ with Sens. Mitch McConnell (Ky.), Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), and Tim Scott (S.C.). The forum consisted of three panels composed of parents and students from Washington, D.C.’s top-performing charter and private schools, as well as representatives from D.C. Prep, Kipp D.C., Washington Latin, the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, Alliance for School Choice and the D.C. Charter School Board.
‘Every decision made by bureaucrats in Washington is a decision taken from the people who actually educate our children – principals, teachers, and especially parents. On Tuesday, I spoke with these people at a school choice forum and I was moved by each success story,’ Sen. Paul said. ‘Young boys and girls, who might not have otherwise had the opportunity to excel, have become successful men and women leaders in their communities – due to receiving a better education than they otherwise would have. All children, no matter who they are or where they live, deserve an equal chance to develop their skills and intellect. Each student I spoke with on Tuesday was eager to learn, succeed and grow, and by nurturing the ideals of choice and individual freedom, we can find education solutions that direct all of our children toward success.’
