School choice sets students up for success. It's time to make it national.

Twenty years ago, I had the privilege of signing the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship bill into law and today, more than a million Florida students have received scholarships to attend a school of their choice. Over the years, I’ve met many of these students, each of whom is a story of hope and represent one of the greatest public policy successes of our time. 

While thiswasn’t the first school choice program (Wisconsin came first), it is the nation’s largest and has done the most to spur the school choice movement nationwide. 

This revolution had its critics, naturally. Even today, after decades of success, programs here in Florida and across the country face lawsuits and political opposition from entrenched interests. These are the same special interests who have worked to block and sue to keep schools closed when evidence and science said it was safe.
