School choice is today’s top civil rights issue, Sen. Ted Cruz told a group of several hundred students at a rally in Washington on Wednesday during National School Choice Week.

“Just last week we celebrated Martin Luther King Day. In 1963, Dr. King stood at the Lincoln Memorial and promised justice for all of our children. School choice is the civil rights issue of the 21st century,” the Texas Republican senator and 2016 presidential hopeful said (hear his remarks here).

Cruz declared that school choice was a way of “ensuring every child has an opportunity to receive an excellent education, that it shouldn’t matter what your race or ethnicity or zip code is, every single child deserves an opportunity to achieve the very best.”
