The AAA has proven successful in taking students out of some of the most dangerous and underperforming schools in the nation and putting them in environments that are not only academically challenging, but safe. Many of Alabama's public schools are successful and academically rigorous. Most Alabamians, how-ever, do not live in the zip codes that these schools serve.
The AAA gives students in less-privileged zip codes the opportunity to pursue a better education and therefore, a better future. The AAA also rights some of Alabama's historic wrongs - specifically the segregation of schools - as it broadly offers educational choice that was historically limited to the majority population.
