School Choice Alumni Head Back to DC to Share Their Stories
Earlier this Summer, students from across the country flew into Washington, D.C. for one reason: to share the significant impact having access to school choice programs in their state has had on their lives. Most were visiting the nation’s capital for the very first time, and while completely taken by the history and monuments that surrounded them, were even more excited to visit Capitol Hill to talk about their educational journey.
From being accepted into 30+ colleges to being offered $100,000s in scholarships, our alumni are some of the best examples of why school choice works. Keep reading to take a look back at their recent visit.
