Support Education Freedom in Virginia

Virginia parents, help is finally on the way in the form of education policy that will actually empower parents and make it easier to hold public schools accountable.  

Virginia Delegate Glenn Davis recently introduced HB 1508, which will establish Education success accounts (ESA) to K-12 students in Virginia. This bill sets aside a portion of the state education funding allocated to each child and deposits it into an education savings account, and parents can direct the funds to eligible education expenses, including tuition, tutoring, textbooks, and therapies. 

Virginia’s students must be allowed to escape the residentially-assigned public schools that are not educating them. The education savings account proposal provides approximately $4,500 each year for each child. Public school and rising kindergarten students who are not already enrolled in a private school or homeschool would be eligible to leave the public school system and access ESAs.

Ten states already have education savings account programs in place. It’s time for Virginia families to have education freedom as well.

Virginia Lt. Gov Winsome Sears has asked parents to share their support for school choice and education savings accounts with state legislators. Help us send that message! 

Tell your Virginia state legislators to support education savings accounts and HB 1508.
