What is School Choice?
Any policy that allows families to take their children’s education dollars to the approved education provider of their choosing – be it traditional public schools, public charter schools, private school, virtual learning, or home schooling.
Parents should have a wide range of high quality schools or educational options to choose from – be it traditional public schools, public charter schools, private schools, virtual learning, or home schooling.
“Education funding is meant for educating children – not for protecting a particular institution. We should fund students, not systems.” – Corey DeAngelis
Private school choice, through scholarship tax credit programs, vouchers, educational savings accounts and individual tuition tax credits, gives students, including those from low-income families or those with special needs, the opportunity to receive tuition to attend a private school that meets their needs immediately. Public school choice, like charters or magnets, allow families to choose educational settings within the public system.
