ESAs a terrible deal for students and taxpayers

Published by

For years, Republicans have underfunded public schools. Then in 2023, Gov. Reynolds and Republicans passed vouchers (Educational Savings Accounts) which gives our public dollars to private schools. Vouchers draw money away from public schools in the amount of $7,635 per student amounting to $900 million over four years. Cloaked as “school choice,” the facts reveal that two out of three students now receiving private school voucher money were already enrolled in private schools. Recipients are getting a taxpayer subsidy for a service they could already afford.
