This administration remains committed to serving all students, especially the most vulnerable. These students particularly benefit from school choice programs. I believe it should be a right for every parent, not a privilege.feedback

These schools need to improve upon how they serve some of D.C.'s most vulnerable students.feedback

When school choice policies are fully implemented, there should not be differences in achievement among the various types of schools. D.C.'s traditional public schools have not suffered as a result of being part of a system that allows choice; rather, they have greatly improved.feedback

It's concerning the difference in standards. I feel like public, private and charter schools need to be playing by the same rules. I think a lot of it is, we're pretty happy with (DOD schools) and making sure the public system is up to snuff for our military children.feedback

I think there is certainly going to be a lot of discussion back and forth as we go through this process.feedback

I don't know. It's too early to say that. I think it's a fine balance to strike. I think the first and most important measure of accountability to the public is to the parents in general, right? The fact that parents choose a school for their child.

Our nation's commitment is to provide a quality education to every child to serve the greater public, common good.

The budget places power in the hands of parents and families to choose schools that are best for their children.feedback

I trust parents, I trust teachers, and I trust school leaders to do what is right for the students they serve. When Washington gets out of your way, you should be able to unleash new and creative thinking to set children up for success. I am agnostic as to the delivery system, or the building in which it takes place, so long as that child is in an environment that meets their needs and the parents are satisfied. And one of those quality options should be a great public school.feedback

They're waiting to be told what they have to do, and that's not going to bring success to an individual child. You have to have teachers who are empowered to facilitate great teaching.

Where conflicts are identified, they will be resolved. I will not be conflicted. Period. I commit that to you all.feedback
