Sen. Lee celebrates National School Choice Week

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) recognized National School Choice Week an editorial piece he authored and published in the Deseret News. This is a continuation of his advocacy for parents’ ability to choose where their children attend school.

The editorial highlights Sen. Lee’s CHOICE Act, a bill that allows parents to redirect federal education dollars to the schools where they choose to send their children.  Full text of the bill can be read HERE.  A press release on its introduction is available HERE.

Of school choice, Sen. Lee said, “Families are what make Utah great.  In every choice from strollers to schooling, the wellbeing of the child is the parent’s primary concern.  So, let’s put parents in charge.  This bill is part of a movement in which parents are taking back choices that are rightfully theirs.  Students, communities, and our nation will benefit.”
