From AFP release:
RALEIGH – Americans for Prosperity North Carolina released a short film today featuring the incredible education students are receiving at Douglass Academy charter school in downtown Wilmington, NC, to promote its latest school choice advocacy effort, “Voices for Choices.”
Designed for a diverse community of school choice supporters at NCVoicesforChoices.com, Voices for Choices is an informational resource for North Carolina parents and advocates that empowers users to take action and support expanding education options for families statewide.
State Director Donald Bryson issued the following statement:
“This site focuses on all four options for North Carolina families – public, private, charter and homeschools – and emphasizes the important role that options play in education outcomes for North Carolina families. We believe every family deserves to choose the best education for their child, and that school choice is an essential part of economic development and growth in our state.
School choice instills a competitive spirit and innovative approach to get more education for our tax dollars. This free-market philosophy is a welcome change to a ceaseless, tired bureaucratic drumbeat of more dollars for education that ignores real results.
While some establishment special interests focus on simply pouring more money into public education, the final educational outcomes for our students are what actually matter. For families who can’t afford private options but are desperate to find a brighter future, a school choice today could change their child’s life.
We’re excited to tell the success story of school choice expansion in North Carolina and expand policies that give every family – not a select few – a choice where to start their child’s journey in life.”
The organization’s parent chapter in Arlington, VA featured the video on its Youtube page for subscribers nationwide.
