Students are back in school in Arizona, but it feels a little different this year. Now, every parent in the state has the option to either keep their child in public school or spend their $7,000 in taxes on educating them another way. The new law affects 1.1 million K-12 students, making Arizona the “gold standard” in school choice, according to our two guests.
Corey Deangelis—national director of research for the American Federation for Children and executive director at Educational Freedom Institute—says this is part of a growing trend: “School choice candidates are winning. This is becoming a litmus test issue for Republicans in particular.”
Jenny Clark, an Arizona mother of five, explains everything about how Arizona’s Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (ESA) work. She runs a non-profit Love Your School that helps families navigate their school choice options.
