Another School Choice Trifecta: Jared Polis, Bill Cosby, Ben DeGrow… Swish!
Since yesterday’s school choice trifecta was so successful, why not another one to help bring a smashing conclusion to National School Choice Week? We’re in the heart of basketball season — it’s not March Madness time yet — but still “trifecta” gets me thinking about making that long-range jumper for student-centered education reform:
- Yesterday, Colorado’s U.S. Congressman Jared Polis put his name to some Ed News Colorado commentary celebrating School Choice Week, aptly concluding “Empowering all families with school choice should be honored every week in word and deed, not just this week”
- Daily Caller columnist Caroline May reports on the legendary and beloved comedian Bill Cosby’s passionate pleas for more school choice and great classroom teachers, as well as his clear statement to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan that more K-12 system funding is not the answer to our nation’s education shortcomings
- Last but not least, my Education Policy Center friend Ben DeGrow helped to celebrate School Choice Week with a couple radio show appearances, including a discussion of choice and reform with the Mike Rosen Show’s large audience and a Northern Colorado conversation on the Amy Oliver Show
Time to run, but what else can I say? SWISH!!!… Nothing but net!
