Statement from City Council President Sabina Matos Regarding the Expansion of Achievement First
I’m a proponent of giving parents choices. Historically, low-income families have never had the real option of choosing which schools to send their children to. The demand for choice is at an all-time high as evidenced by the 3,000 or so families on the Achievement First waiting list alone.
The school decision is one that is intimate to families and we should promote this freedom by providing them more options rather than limiting them.
