America is a land built on the principle of freedom. Freedom stands for something greater than just the right to act however I choose — it also stands for securing for everyone an equal opportunity for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Americans cherish their freedom and virtually every product or service that we desire comes with myriad options. Just look around and see all the choices we have: Gas stations, banks, TV providers, credit cards, grocery stores, restaurants; almost everything families want or need comes with many choices to fit everyone’s particular interest.
While we accept this variety of choices as an unspoken part of American life, it still amazes me that we have yet to ensure everyone has a variety of great choices for how we educate the most important gift we offer our precious children.
