School choice

Nobody should stop you from sending your child to the school that’s best suited to your family.

About the issue

Every child deserves a high-quality education, no matter how much money their parents make. School choice programs open the doors of opportunity for children to experience the transformative power of learning right here, right now. The Liberty Justice Center represents parents and reform advocates in legal cases that expand educational freedom. We work to ensure every child has access to a great education and can attend a school that is the right fit for them and regularly represent families across the country who face obstacles to exercising educational choice.
