On School Choice: Tennessee Could Be Next

We don’t want to jinx things, but things are looking good for an expansion of education freedom in Tennessee.

An Education Savings Account expansion bill – where the dollars follow the students for public or private school options – has passed the House and Senate in Nashville.  Governor Bill Lee is strongly supportive.

The good news: eligible families will receive ESA funding worth $7,500 to start and up to $8,700 in future years.   This is less than half what the public schools spend per child.

We are disappointed that the ESAs are capped at 15,000 families and to a few counties and only to the lowest income families.

That’s a good start. But why not give EVERY child a choice?
