A number of states are taking action to provide education funding for families to send their children to schools of their choice – a trend that will likely shape upcoming elections.
“This session, let’s expand school choice any way we can. Greater open enrollment. New transportation models. More charter schools. And more educational freedom for families — especially those in failing schools, or who can’t afford to pick up and move to a new neighborhood,” said Gov. Doug Ducey, R-AZ, in his State of the State address to lawmakers Monday.
Other states like Nebraska and South Carolina are also exploring school choice options.
