(Washington, DC) – Representative Daniel Webster (FL-10) issued this statement today following his vote in favor of H.R. 10, the Success and Opportunity through Quality Charter Schools Act – bipartisan legislation to expand and improve support for charter schools:

“Regardless of your zip code, America should be the land of opportunity, full of endless potential. Regrettably, for those in certain school districts across our nation, a failing local school can write a student’s future before they have the opportunity to determine it through their own effort.

“As schools of choice, charter schools must measure up to the expectations of the toughest critics of our students’ education – their parents. Whether it is offering an escape from an underperforming school or the benefits of a specialized curriculum, the bipartisan Success and Opportunity through Quality Charter School Act will empower parents of students to put their child within reach of the limitless opportunities a good education affords.”
