There is Hope for Education in America! Andrew Campanella Tells Us Why

"We can't do this to kids. We are paying far too much money for a public education system that isn't working," says Vice President of National School Choice Week Andrew Campanella.

Everyone knows that the U.S. education system is in trouble. Campanella offers a few words on how school choice week can help with promoting "access to better options and empowering parents and kids."

According to Campanella, the U.S. ranks 35th in the world in math and literacy.

"Other countries are not just nipping at our heels educationally, they've lapped us," Campanella says.

Campanella contends that school choice offers real solutions to raising the bar and educating the next generation, and that it's not just empty words.
