Lockwood: Ignite potential of students, don’t starve them
DENVER—Today, Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood responded to the Colorado Supreme Court’s ruling against Douglas County Schools school choice program:
“We should be igniting the potential of student success and keep school choice programs strong. Today’s ruling takes us backward, not forward, and stands in contrast with the Coloradans who want to see our state be a leader, not a straggler in education reform.
“Voracious opponents of school choice are starving students of opportunity and hope for a brighter future that success brings. Students should always come first, and always take priority over money and special interests. By denying students the right to school choice, you are denying them a flourishing life.”
