Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee joined forces with Republican Senator Ted Cruz to promote equal opportunity education and kickoff National School Choice Week.
It’s an issue bringing Left and Right together, including the only two African-American members of the United States Senate: Democrat Senator Cory Booker and Republican Senator Tim Scott.
The Daily Beast writes, “There is no question that educational inequality is a civil rights issue because it is so fundamentally at the core of income inequality, which is the defining equal rights issue of America today.”
