Chavous, founding board member of the American Federation for Children. “This primary victory is a direct result of parents rising up to defend school choice and elect pro-school choice candidates.”

Are working class families outside of Milwaukee & Racine too "rich" for educational opportunity for their children?

Ed Willing I agree. This is frustrating. My son shouldn't have to possibly lose his ability to attend a choice school because his parents make more money either. Once you're in, you're in. But any interruption invalidates your qualification. This discriminates against the middle class.
Jennifer Thomas It's going to get worse with Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary.
George F. Ashley That's stupid.
