I was appalled by the choice of language of the speaker Dr. Terry Stoops. Is this what he said? Verbatim?
“If I have a choice between school A and school B, [and] school B better meets the needs of my child, I’m going to send it to school B, and the state will put its money behind that school.”
Would you please verify that the speaker referred to a child as an “it,” in your quotation?
