Education Savings Accounts are one of the most innovative ways in which policymakers can empower students and families to discover individualized pathways to the education that best suits each child’s unique needs.
ESAs are flexible and cover education-related expenses that range from tuition to tutoring,
supplemental education material, to online courses and classes. Most of all, they create a funding system built around students, rather than a funding system built around buildings. Only by creating an environment that allows bottom-up solutions to address the individual needs of every student we can hope to give more families access to a flexible, 21st-century education.
ESAs are one of the best policy tools we can employ to achieve this goal.
Recently, lawmakers in West Virginia took a step to break barriers for new education opportunities for students by passing the Hope Scholarship bill.
Thank our lawmakers and encourage them to continue standing up for West Virginia students!
