NJ Governor Chris Christie Supports Choice at CSF Philadelphia Event

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was presented with a Citizen of the Year award at Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia’s (CSFP) annual Student Award Ceremony this morning.

Governor Christie told the audience of CSFP Scholars, their families, and CSFP supporters that he wanted to accept the award in person because he believes it is important to put parents in charge of their child’s education.

“I will say it over and over again: No one cares about a child’s education more than a parent. And parents need to be empowered to make those choices regardless of their income, regardless of the means they bring to the table,” he said. “Their children’s dreams are no less precious than the children of parents of greater means.”

CSFP, a partner of the national Children’s Scholarship Fund, provided scholarships to 3,500 Philadelphia children to attend private schools in 2012-13.
