APUBLISED STUDY by Economics Professor Caroline Hoxby found that from 1970 to 2010, the cost of public educationin the USA increased by 327 percent – in real inflation-adjusted dollars! Not surprisingly, many nonpublic schools are providing excellent education for one-third the cost.
Incredibly, New Jersey now has a sponsored a universal school choice bill- the only one to empower ALL parents to provide their children with a quality education of their choice. With leading school choice advocates in the State Legislature, this is the opportunity to bring together a diverse and strong group of concerned citizens – of all stripes and political affiliations – to prevail on the remaining Legislators to honor their oath of office – to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
We have a tiny window of opportunity between now and November 3rd, when our Legislators are in a “listening mode.” The growing momentum toward the 2016 national election, with school choice on the platform of many of the presidential candidates, also provides us the amazing opportunity for New Jersey to lead the nation, with the help of those who now have the nation’s attention. Please let us know whether you will help with this enormous challenge.
Although it may appear that we are unable to complete this task, we are still compelled to take it on. With help from Above, boundless blessings will flow forth from improved education for all children.
