McCain Vouches for School Choice

Posted on April 2, 2008 In Blog

At a recent speech at his alma matter, Episcopal High School in Alexandria VA, presumptive GOP nominee John McCain endorsed the long-time OU issue of school choice. The full quote can be found below:

“If a failing school won’t change, it shouldn’t be beyond the reach of students to change their schools. Parents should be able to send their children to the school that best suits their needs just as Cindy and I have been able to do, whether it is a public, private or parochial school. The result will not be the demise of the public school system in America, but competition that will help make public schools accountable and as successful as they should be in a country as great and prosperous as ours.”
