WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) and Tim Scott (R-SC), leading advocates for school choice, introduced a resolution celebrating National Charter Schools Week and commending charter schools for their contributions to education.
“A good education is life changing. When parents and families have the option to send their child to a charter school, they have the power to choose the best education for their child’s needs. This resolution recognizes the work of charter schools to build brighter futures for our children and grandchildren,” said Dr. Cassidy.
“Here in South Carolina and across the country, charter schools enroll more students and serve more communities every year,” said Senator Scott. “The high-quality teaching and innovative approach to education provide a strong foundation for students of all backgrounds. I have long believed what the pandemic confirmed for so many American families: when parents lack school choice, children’s education suffers. I am thankful for the important work charter school teachers, leaders, parents, and advocates continue to do in opening more doors to success for the next generation.”
