WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today issued the following statement regarding his support for a resolution from U.S. Sen. Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) designating the week of January 25 through January 31, 2015 as “National School Choice Week:”
 
“School choice is the civil rights issue of the twenty-first century. Sixty years ago, the Supreme Court ruled in
Brown v. Board of Education that all children, regardless of race, deserve an equal opportunity to learn. Yet sadly today millions of children – many in minority communities – are trapped in failing schools with no other educational options. We must fight to reverse this trend and open the doors of opportunity and school choice for these kids. Sen. Scott is a clarion voice in the fight to expand school choice, which is the most effective engine we have to improve the quality of education. I’m proud for us to be working together to give every child an equal opportunity to learn and succeed.”
