The Rhode Island Center for Freedom and Prosperity has joined school choice advocates in the state to launch the "Bright Today Educational Choice" campaign -- and said that if given the choice, only 29% of Rhode Islanders would choose a government run-school.

The main points of the coalition initiative, called the "Bright Today Educational Choice" campaign,  are that no child should be condemned to attend a failing school; that all families should feel confident that their children can dream of a bright future; that no child should have to wait for tomorrow's reform promises; and every child deserves an education of their family's choice - today. 

See the Brighter Today Campaign Website here.

"At the end of the day, we have to realize that we have failed to provide our children with an education that will translate to real-world success. It is time for us to empower parents and then, as so many other states have seen, watch as our children thrive in an educational environment that matches their unique learning needs," said Luis Vargas, a 2014 candidate for General Assembly in South Providence and product of school choice himself.

Parents and or individuals who would like to stay informed or join the campaign can do so by registering at the RI Families or School Choice website.
