25,000 march for school choice

Twenty-five thousand people marched on Wednesday in New York City, reports Kate Stringer with The 74, to call for expanded school choice.

The march, organized by Families for Excellent Schools, called for the city to expand charter schools until they serve 200,000 students. That would double the number of students currently in New York's charters, rising to about one-fifth of all New York students.
