We have lost a great warrior in the school choice movement. J. Patrick Rooney stands with Milton Friedman. He created the first private voucher foundation, which became the precursor to the tax-credit scholarship granting organization, which gives school choice to thousands of kids in Arizona and Florida (and other states.)
He also invented the Health Savings Account, which it one of the strongest tools (yet to be fully implemented) in the effort to fix our broken medical industry.
The Wall Street Journal has a eulogy to him. I was privileged to have Pat as a personal friend. He will remain an encouragement to me in the struggle for school choice for all kids.
