Education Matters: It’s National School Choice Week

“Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another.” — G.K. Chesterton

It’s National School Choice Week. Sadly, the government continues to insert itself into every part of our lives, restricting freedom wherever it is able. Always in the name of some higher benevolent purpose, as if bureaucrats know better how to raise our children than we do.

“School choice is the process of allowing every family to choose the K-12 educational options that best fit their children. These options include all forms of education, from traditional public schools, to public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.” (This quote came from the third article below.)

Your kids get one chance at adolescence. There is no reset button on an education. Most parents want the best for their children, and parents will better understand their children’s needs than lawyers or bureaucrats ever will.

Here are a number of articles for those who have an interest in this topic.
