To the Editor: Comstock backs school choice

As a mother, I support school choice. I believe in unique educational opportunities for all children. No two children are the same, so they shouldn’t be forced into a one-size-fits-all education box. Parents should be given the opportunity to craft an approach to education that works for their child. For some, that may mean public schools with a specialized after school program. For others, that might mean a charter or parochial school. For other still, that might mean homeschooling.

Congresswoman Barbara Comstock understands the needs of parents because she is a mom. She’s watched her children grow up and she understands the difficult choices parents have to make when it comes to their child’s education.

In Congress, Comstock supported the “Every Student Achieves Act,” a landmark piece of legislation that expands school choice and supports high-quality charter schools. This legislation will empower local leaders to create the opportunities that their children need to succeed.

Congresswoman Comstock understands that one-size-fits-all education solutions aren’t solutions at all. She’s been a strong support of choice for parents and students – and that’s why she’s my choice on November 8.
