March 1 — Years ago, David McGuire’s mom used his grandmother’s address to send her son to a better school. It was decision that has made a profound impact not only on David’s life, but the lives of the hundreds of children he’s mentored as co-principal of Tindley Summit Academy, an Indianapolis public charter school.
David’s video about his mother’s choice recently won national recognition through the Foundation for Excellence in Education‘s Choices In Education video contest. Watch David’s story here:

Indiana provides families with a wide array of school choices including public charter schools, online virtual schools, public magnet schools, free transfer to another public school, homeschooling, and financial help to help lower-income families pay for private school.
