Who Should Decide What is Best for Your Child?
Nothing is more important to the future of society than the education of our youth. To paraphrase Aristotle: The fate of empires is dependent on the education of their youth. While Texas is a leader on many fronts, it is sadly behind on education reform. The Texas Supreme Court called upon lawmakers to “upend an ossified regime ill-suited for 21st century Texas” and the Legislature holds the key to unlocking parents’ ability to improve the educational welfare of millions of Texas children.
In their presentation to the Texas House Committee on Public Education, the Texas Public Policy Foundation argues that Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) provide an exciting opportunity for Texas children and for the quality of life of future Texans. ESAs should be the direction Texas moves as it addresses its current educational system.
