School Choice Gets Celebrity Backing



Text  



The Walden media movies Won’t Back Down, which comes out tomorrow, has teacher unions livid. Lead actress Viola Davis defended school choice to Jay Leno: 

 

I am a parent. And as a parent, I have a child and I know that the only way she’s going to get a part of the American Dream is through education. And so if that great education is a public school, I’m going to send my kid to the public school. If that great education is a charter school, I’m going to send my kid to a charter school. If it’s a private school, I’ll send her to a private school.

I think that it’s about wanting do what’s best for your kid.
