Chesapeake, VA -  E.W. Jackson, Candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia released the following statement to join millions of Americans commemorating National School Choice Week on January 27 - Feb 3, 2013:


"The theme of my campaign for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia is 'Let liberty Light the Way'. Parental Choice in education is a liberty issue and should be a fundamental civil right.


"Parents are the first and best teachers of their children. When they delegate to teachers the role of educating their children, they should not be forced to relinquish safety and educational quality.


"Statistics confirm what we already know: our educational system is broken. The current federal one-size-fits-all approach to education has failed miserably. It is time for parents to reclaim their rightful place in determining where and how their children will be educated. Public policy must affirm and support this parental right.


"As Lieutenant Governor of Virginia I will advocate tirelessly for an amendment to the State Constitution to implement parental choice in the Commonwealth.


"The family is the first government and the first school house. We must allow liberty to light the way in Virginia by ensuring the freedom of parents to make educational choices for their children."
