Well, that didn’t take long. As you can see from the press release below, the Democrat Governor of Arizona, Katie Hobbs, changed her mind and signed into law the GOP budget that includes FULL funding for the Arizona Education Savings Accounts. This money is used to allow 50,000 kids to go to private or charter schools of their choice.
Hobbs had previously pledged to the teacher unions that she would kill the program. This is a huge victory for school choice not just in Arizona – but in states throughout the country that are attempting to adopt the Arizona model.
Regular readers of the HOTLINE know that last week CTUP started running TV ads featuring a family that benefits from the program and asking Hobbs not to stop the funding. Thanks to all the school choice groups that worked together to save the day.
