Lamar Alexander reports Passage of National School Choice Week Resolution

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), Congressional School Choice Caucus co-chair, introduced a resolution declaring this week as National School Choice Week. Senator Scott was joined by Senate Education Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). The resolution was agreed to by the Senate.

“As someone who was raised in a single-parent household in a distressed community, I know all too well what it’s like to feel overlooked. I firmly believe that a child’s zip code should not affect his or her access to quality education nor should it affect the child’s future, which is why I proudly support National School Choice Week,” said Senator Tim Scott.
