I am a father of two children, one of whom is entering first grade.  I support “Backpack Funding.” Children will be given a certain amount of money depending on their grade and special needs.  Parents will be able to choose any school they want and the funding will follow the child.  This money can be used for public education in or out of district, for private schools, or for tutors and materials for home schooled children.  It is time to let the poor send their children to the schools of their choice.  Give educational justice to ALL.
