Families and Communities — Not Government — Deserve to Choose

The chances are that either you or someone you know received a positive education at a local public school, and was able to use that foundation to work toward a productive life.

Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to have access to that successful path.

As the Rev. Robert A. Siricio, president and co-founder of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, writes in the The Detroit News:

Public schools mired in administrative and bureaucratic growth are perpetually stuck in neutral when it comes to adequately preparing many if not most students as they pursue their passions.

I know too many parents who ardently desire alternatives to whatever au courant pedagogical methods are often untested yet still implemented in our government-run counterparts but aren’t well-connected, don’t have the freedom or the means to choose the education best for their children.

That’s sadly because parents who send their children to parochial schools in the United States pay twice for their children’s education: once in taxes that underwrite a sprawling, national public-education complex, and again in tuition for the smaller, personalized schools that their children actually attend.
