It’s great for Nevada parents
Why does Kentucky resist such great ideas?
A new article from the Friedman Foundation says Nevada is moving to the forefront of school-choice states with two pieces of legislation that set school choice in the Silver State at a whole new level.
The most recent and far-reaching bill creates some really amazing Education Savings Accounts (ESA), which will allow parents to have a lot more control over the direction of their child’s education by having a say on how the dollars the state has allotted for their child are actually spent.
The second bill creates a new program where business and industry can take tax deductions for contributions they make to independent scholarship-granting organizations that then will distribute the money to low and middle income students to attend the school of their choice.
These bills and still more education legislation hurls Nevada into the forefront of education-reform activity. The Nevada action absolutely eclipses anything going on in Kentucky.
