Ted Cruz speaks on Schools
School Choice is back in the news as Senator Ted Cruz speaks at last week’s Club for Growth School Freedom Forum. The Republican from Texas touted school choice as the “gateway” to kids’ futures and took a swipe at teachers’ unions he said were blocking the door, “If you look at millions of kids who are trapped in failing schools right now, who are trapped in schools where they don’t have hope, where they don’t have a future,” he said.
“Look, everything starts with education,” Republican Nevada Senate candidate Adam Laxalt told Fox News Digital. “The American Dream, opportunity.”
Laxalt noted that school freedom was especially important in Las Vegas, “where education ranks at the bottom” and where “kids need this opportunity.”
