WCRIS’ advocates and supports non-sectarian independent schools and faith-based schools in promoting and protecting common core values:
Ensuring that pupils at all schools have the resources they need to become productive, responsible, and engaged members of society.
Equitable Opportunity for ALL Children
Parents have the right to select the educational path that best serves their child(ren). Public policy should affirm this, and empower parents by providing them with the resources necessary to send their child(ren) to the school of their choice, regardless of their financial circustances.
Supporting the Tradition of Independent School Missions
Private education has existed in the United States for over 500 years - 300 years earlier than the first public school was created. Private schools are an important part of our history, and should be respected and supported for future generations to come.
