Carlos Alfaro, Arizona Coalitions Director of The LIBRE Institute, issued the following statement:
“The hope of a better future for our children starts with a chance at a quality education. That’s why families in Arizona overwhelmingly agree that education is a top issue. Through the launch of our new grassroots initiative we are educating families on the educational options available to them, and on the role that educational freedom plays in empowering families with the ability to select the best options for their children. When you empower families with more choices and greater access to information, it better equips our community to reach the American Dream.”
