Espinoza SCOTUS Ruling Opens Doors for More Educational Opportunity

Jul 1, 2020 by AFP

CHARLESTON, SC – Following the Supreme Court’s ruling in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue, Americans for Prosperity-South Carolina (AFP-SC) Director of Grassroots Operations Candace Carroll issued the following statement:

“As it stands today, the traditional one-size-fits-all, zoned by ZIP code education system doesn’t work for many families. Thankfully, the Supreme Court’s ruling opens the door for more students to receive an education that works for them. We will build on this and continue working to ensure every South Carolina student and family has the ability to choose an individualized education.”

Background:

Last year, Americans for Prosperity and yes. every kid. filed an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court in support of those families. Today, the court ruled in a way that guarantees those families equal access to an education that meets the child’s needs.

Americans for Prosperity-South Carolina has been at the forefront of the push for educational freedom. This session, the grassroots group launched a digital and mail campaign urging lawmakers to advance Senate Bill 556 to the full committee, a bill that would give students and families an education scholarship account (ESA).
