Unity, This week is National School Choice Week! On Monday, January 22nd, President Trump signed the National School Choice Week Proclamation. “By giving parents more control over their children’s education, we are making strides toward a future of unprecedented educational attainment and freedom of choice. Under the leadership of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, we will continue to advance school choice so that every child in America has access to the tools best suited to enabling them to achieve the American Dream.”Excerpt from President Trump’s Proclamation. read more. <www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/president-donald-j-trump-proclaims-january-21-january-27-2018-national-school-choice-week/> I applaud this move by the President because I believe school choice is rooted in an important biblical principle. God entrusts children to parents, and parents are primarily responsible for a child’s education (Proverbs 22:6). So what does this mean? I believe it means that parents in the United States should be empowered to pursue the best possible education for their children that supports the values of their faith…regardless of their zip code or economic status. However, in most states in America, parents are stripped of their ability to choose the best education option for their child. If a family can’t afford a private school or to homeschool, their only option is the public school in their zip code. If they wish to send their child to a better public school, their only option is to buy a nicer house in a better district. This simply isn’t possible for many families across America. Our current education system discriminates against the impoverished. It’s time we have equal education opportunity in America for all families regardless of their zip code.  As Christians, we should champion the cause of school choice not only for our own children and grandchildren but also for the less fortunate families in our nation.
