School choice can create the right option for individual students

I have served on a private school board, currently serve on a public School Board and can tell you that both environments seek to provide a meaningful educational experience that better prepares students for their next phase in life.

However, the student must decide on what that next phase will be — hopefully with parental guidance. Will that decision be the same for each student? Without a doubt, the answer is “no.”
