Sen. Cruz Introduces Educational Freedom Accounts Act

Bill creates educational choice program in D.C. for every public school student

Ted.cruz.declaresTexas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. This week, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) introduced the Educational Freedom Accounts Act (S. 2455), creating a unique educational choice program in Washington, D.C. that would provide opportunity to every public school student in the nation’s capital, including those enrolled in public charter schools.

Sen. Cruz’s bill, modeled after Nevada’s recently passed Education Savings Account (ESA) law, would allow every student enrolled in District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) to receive the amount that DCPS would normally spend per pupil in a parent-controlled account. Parents would then be able to completely customize their child’s education by spending those dollars on any combination of education needs.

“School choice continues to be the civil rights issue of our era. Each and every child has the right to access a quality education,” Sen. Cruz said. “Not only does school choice give low-income children the same choices and opportunities that children from wealthy families have always had, it also improves the public schools, making them stronger and more effective. This legislation ensures that every child in Washington, D.C., regardless of race, ethnicity, or zip code, has the same opportunity to choose the school that best fits their needs and will help them achieve their very best.”

TED;
I have followed and supported you for many years , however somewhere between your announcement announcing your candidacy and now you turned your campaign over to FUND RAISERS rather than
submit yourself to the will of GOD.
If you would repent turn you campaign over to your father(who is committed openly to the power of GOD, there is still time to do GOD ‘S work with GOD’S people GOD’S way.
ANYONE that has NOT heard Raphael Cruz on Phyllis Stewart Schlafly’s radio program to do so.
