The Power of Choice

In May 2015, News 10 NBC in Rochester, NY, aired in an in-depth, multi-part special on the Power of Choice, exploring why parents in Rochester, New York, are not afforded the same opportunities as parents in Washington, D.C. when it comes to finding the best fit for their child’s education.

The series comes at a critical time when Governor Cuomo and New Yorkers are working to expand charter schools and bring much-needed tax credits to Empire State families vying for the freedom to choose the best education for their child.

The Center for Education Reform was honored to weigh in and provide context about how public charter schools have changed education in our nation’s capital.
