Public eSchool Families Present “Golden Apple Award”
TIPP CITY, OHIO 10/30/14 – The Ohio eSchool Families & Friends Coalition, a non-profit school choice advocacy organization, awarded their annual Golden Apple Award to Senator Bill Beagle. In a small ceremony held in Tipp City, a grateful public eSchool family presented Sen. Beagle with his award.
“Senator Beagle has done a lot to protect my ability to choose this type of education for my family. It was great to be a part of honoring him for his actions to support school choice in Ohio,” said Angie Loomis of Eaton.
The Loomis family has one child enrolled in an Ohio eSchool and one that graduated last year. “eSchooling just works for our family,” said Angie. “It has in the past for our daughter and we see it being effective for our son. If it weren’t a good place for him, he wouldn’t go to school there, because we as his parents know what is best for him. Sen. Beagle supports our parental choice and he deserves this award as a small token of our gratitude for that.”
“Each year our Coalition is proud to recognize legislators who have stood up for a parent’s right to choose the best learning environment for their child. All public schools will benefit when we trust parents,” said Sara Donlon, Ohio eSchool Families & Friends Coalition President.
The Ohio eSchool Families and Friends Coalition is a non-profit organization representing students, parents, teachers and others who believe in empowering families to enroll their kids in these innovative public schools. Our organization seeks to be a broad based group of stakeholders, including families, so that we ALL will have a voice in the public policy debates over critical school choice issues that will impact Ohio’s future, especially during challenging times.
