Letter: Jame Gahun, Aldie

Editor: 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.

    Good for Barbara Comstock!

    Now … where does LuAnn Bennet stand on school choice?

    From LuAnn’s campaign website:

    “LuAnn wants to make sure OUR PUBLIC EDUCATION SYSTEM is providing every child with the skills and the knowledge they need….”

    “She supports legislation establishing UNIVERSAL PRE-K, including full-day kindergarten in Loudoun County, so that all of our students come into THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM ready to learn” (emphasis added).

    Ah yes … for Ms. Bennett, as with all Democrats, it’s always and only about keeping all of our children in the public school system. And they call themselves the party of “CHOICE”?
