School Choice Petition sign now

By the Grace of Our Creator:

The Honorable Jerrold Nadler,
U.S. Congressman, New Yorks 8th District

Hon. Jerrold Nadler:

As a Representative in the U.S. Congress, you are surely most concerned with the urgent needs of our nation's children and their families. Although this is not a matter that appears much in the press, there is a desperate need to repair our nation's broken school system. Countless children and their families are suffering daily and lives are being destroyed. This is a matter of great urgency and is surely worthy of rising to the top of any priority list of domestic issues.

The enormously costly programs that have been tried over the last several decades have not worked. Yet, we have refused to rectify that which is the very cause of the problem. As the late economist Milton Friedman described the solution, all which is required is to apply the principles of free enterprise. Monopolies have never worked well in enterprise, and the same applies to education. (See his articles, beginning with his 1955 The Role of Government in Education.)

The impact that school choice will have on our society goes far beyond improving education. Parents will be free to raise their families in accordance with their values and religious traditions, without being financially coerced to send their children to schools that conflict with these values. This will impact the sharp turn to the left that our society has taken under the influence of our current system.

School choice is an issue that impacts every child, mother and father in the United States. Legislation that will allow them better educational opportunities will energize them to political action. Many parents have rejected voucher programs that violated the requirements set forth by Dr. Friedman, because they did not satisfy the needs of most of the children while placing additional burdens upon the hard-working taxpayer. However, civil rights legislation that follows the pattern of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 will be embraced by voters of all stripes.

We urge you to sponsor the Civil Rights Act for Equal Educational Opportunity, to require equitable educational funding for children in public and non-public schools, while respecting the liberty of schools hiring and provision of services.

Please be assured that we are ready to do all that we can to support this legislation and encourage others to do the same.

Thank you for giving this your priority attention.
