Why school choice is about possibility, not partisanship

Clip: 07/14/2017 | 2m 39s

Journalist Gayle Tzemach Lemmon’s mother -- a union Democrat who worked at the phone company during the day and sold Tupperware at night — lied about her address so Lemmon could attend a better elementary school. Lemmon talks about her own experience with school choice and why she now sees it not as an "issue,” but as a matter of life and death.
