With Christin Kaiser
Why is school choice important to you?
I have three children who were NOT made equal and we live in a failing school district. The current school choice option that I have chosen for my children has allowed me to take their learning needs into consideration and place them in schools that is best fit their needs and fortunately adapts to their learning needs.
Why did you become involved with PSO?
I found the thought of being a voice not only for my children but numerous others across the state empowering. Empowering in the sense that there is a possibility that my one little voice could be used to speak volumes to our lawmakers making them aware of the everyday struggles a family can go through when deciding on the best school choice option for their child whether its a learning disability, illness that causes them to miss school or that the child may work at a faster pace than other children in a class.
Why should parents become advocates for their children’s education?
Simply because their tax dollars fund education, therefore their tax dollars should follow their child no matter how they are taught and their voice needs to be heard.
What is your favorite advocacy story?
There is no one favorite, I have heard so many in these last three years that all touch and impacted me in different ways.
How has access to school choice impacted your family?
School choice has truly been a God send, although we are surrounded by failing schools within our district, we have been fortunate to travel outside of our district to place the children in public charter schools also knowing in the back of my mind that I still also have the option to virtually teach my children again in the near future.
