ICYMI: Americans for Prosperity-Louisiana State Director Publishes School Choice Op-ed

May 8, 2024 by AFP

Baton Rouge, LA—In a new opinion piece titled, “Louisiana is Ready for School Choice,” Americans for Prosperity-Louisiana (AFP-LA) State Director Scott Simon writes about disrupting the status quo of the education system and unleashing expanded opportunities for learners through universal Education Scholarship Accounts (ESAs).

In the op-ed published on The Hayride, Simon explains:

“ESAs allow parents to use public funds allocated for their child’s education to pay for a variety of educational expenses, such as tuition, tutoring services, micro-schools, or even home-based schooling. For families seeking alternative education options, ESAs provide parents with the ability to direct their child’s education funding to the schools or educational services that best meet their unique capabilities.

“Kids deserve a robust marketplace of options because with more options comes more opportunities to find their interests, discover talents, and be in the environment that works best for them.”

Simon also encouraged the Senate to pass the LA GATOR Scholarship bill just as the House did and wrote in part, “The Senate can embrace the fact that different students have unique learning styles, needs, and aspirations and ensure resources are available to support students without creating additional burdens on our public education system.”
