In Ohio, we have the right to speak freely, teach, and learn. We trust the government to protect that right.
Except when it doesn’t — and the lawsuit against Ohio’s EdChoice program is eroding that trust.
Ohio’s EdChoice program offers scholarships which benefit kids on the autism spectrum, kids with special needs, kids living in underperforming school districts, and kids living in poverty.
These scholarships allow families to put the per-pupil state funds that would normally follow their student to their public school district toward a different school of their choosing instead.
The net effect? When a student leaves their public school, that school now has MORE per-pupil dollars. All local funds stay in place, and there’s one less kid to teach.
Despite this benefit, Vouchers Hurt Ohio, a group comprised of several public school districts, is suing to shut down the EdChoice program.
Vouchers Hurt Ohio is suing to limit parental rights and reduce the number of educational options for families.
Here are the consequences if Vouchers Hurt Ohio wins its lawsuit against the EdChoice voucher program:
We’ve seen this happen across the country.
There are several ways you can support Ohio’s EdChoice Voucher program and protect families’ education options:
“Our school district is NOT taking a stand in the anti-family rights lawsuit, and we ask that the Vouchers Hurt Ohio coalition remove our school district from their website and all other materials. We do not support their lawsuit.”
Americans for Prosperity is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to removing barriers to freedom and opportunity for all Americans. We believe every person has unique potential, which is why we’re empowering families to protect their rights and advocate greater education options for students so every child can realize their gifts and develop them to the fullest in environments that support and affirm each family’s values.
