Today, Rafael Bejar, Director of Outreach for the Texas Public Policy Foundation, released the following statement on President Trump’s executive order expanding school choice opportunities for Hispanic students.

“Latinos compose nearly 40 percent of Texans and are a vital, vibrant part of the Texas economy,” said Bejar. “The President’s order will help to ensure that their education, which forms the foundation of their invaluable contribution to our state and our culture, is as strong as possible. The White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative will help advance school choice, which will allow parents to enroll their children in the educational environments that meet their individual needs. Parents know best—and the President’s executive order acknowledges and advances this truth.”
