Millions of schoolchildren across the United States are starting the academic year off with more access to school choice than ever before following hard-fought wins in courtrooms , state legislatures , and at the ballot box .
Arizona, which has a long legacy of education freedom, is leading the way. The state has pioneered policies that expand school choice, including education savings accounts, state-backed private school scholarships, a growing charter school sector, and a thriving open enrollment policy.
Last month, Arizona scored another landmark victory for school choice when Republican Gov. Doug Ducey signed a massive expansion of the state’s private voucher system despite threats from public school advocates to block the bill and press voters to nix it during November’s general election.
