School Choice

Friend --

The NAACP doesn't want you to see this video that has gone viral on the internet.

In Greenville, South Carolina, the county school district allows parents to choose which school their child attends -- providing there is an opening and on a first-come, first-serve basis.

What you'll see in this video are parents of every race who camped out for three days in front of an elementary school so they would be the first in line!

When the line opened, unfortunately there was a stampede and one person got hurt with a minor injury. But to me, that's not the story the media should focus on.

The real story is the one the NAACP and the leftist leadership don't want Americans to see: that parents of every race and income group want the best school for their children and too often the public school closest to them is failing them.

When you watch this video, you won't see the stampede the media wants you to see. Instead, you'll see the desperation of parents who want to provide what's best for the lives of their children.

After you watch it, please give me your thoughts in the comment section below whether Americans should let tax-payer money follow the child to the school that parents choose as a matter of policy.

Your foot-soldier for freedom,
Star
