Senator Rand Paul Reintroduces SCHOOL Act That Gives Parents School Choice

As parents across the country struggle with schools that are not fully reopened, Senator Rand Paul is reintroducing his SCHOOL Act.

Parents should have choices and this would give it to them.

Why shouldn’t they be able to send their children to the school that they think will be best for their child?

Dr. Rand Paul Reintroduces SCHOOL Act

Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) reintroduced the Support Children Having Open Opportunities for Learning (SCHOOL) Act to provide parents and students with much-needed flexibility and options regarding K-12 education.

U.S. Representative Chip Roy (R-TX-21) introduced companion legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“I’ve led the effort to reopen our schools from the very beginning, and as we continue our push, it’s imperative that we empower parents to make the decision that’s best for their child’s education — without being restricted by the political games our governors and teachers’ unions have been playing with our children’s lives and well-being,” said Dr. Paul. “I have a bill to do exactly that – my SCHOOL Act would give parents and students a choice in education, and the tools to succeed no matter where they are learning.”

“Nearly one year after Americans were told we should take “two weeks to slow the spread,” too many children are still barred from attending school in person, while billions of dollars have been allocated to the very local authorities keeping schools closed. No more funding should be allocated to these local tyrants at the expense of our children’s futures. Parents should be in control of their child’s education, period, not politicians or union bosses. I’m proud to reintroduce The SCHOOL Act with Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) which allows federal funds for K-12 education to follow the eligible child, regardless of whether the child is in public school, private school, or homeschool,” said Rep. Roy.

This would be great for parents and kids.

Republicans should support this.
