Speaking with Edward Lawrence on Cavuto Coast to Coast last week, CSF President Darla Romfo discussed how Covid school closures continue to have negative effects on children’s learning, following a recent report that finds pandemic learning loss will lead to reduced lifetime earnings. She called for more school choice as a way to narrow achievement gaps and empower parents to take charge of their children’s education:
“Covid pulled back the curtain and showed everyone how bad it is. And it’s not a problem of money. It’s a problem of a flawed system. We fund a system; we don’t fund the children.”
Darla also appeared on Fox Business Tonight on Friday. Speaking with David Asman about the growing support for educational freedom, Darla said, “2023 could definitely be a year of a lot of good news in school choice, education freedom, and parent empowerment.”
