Parents protest for school choice

Across Houston thousands of parents believe they should be able to choose which school their child attends, and they’re hoping 5,000 letters will get lawmaker’s attention.
On Wednesday morning, dozens of parents and educators showed off the 5,000 letters at KIPP Academy, asking lawmakers for equal public charter school funding.
Currently, charter schools receive about $1,000 less per student than a traditional public school. That is money that KIPP co-founder Mike Feinberg says would help thousands of other kids trying to get in.
