AFP-WV Praises Proposal to Eliminate Regulations for Public Schools

May 15, 2019 by AFP

CHARLESTON, WV – Americans for Prosperity-West Virginia (AFP-WV) today applauded House lawmakers for beginning to work towards finding solutions that reduce the regulatory burden on schools and unleash the creativity and talent of our educators. AFP-WV has been a leading voice for educational freedom in the Mountain State. AFP believes we should provide every child in West Virginia the opportunity to receive the education that best meets their unique needs.

A special session has been called to address education issues. AFP-WV is hoping to bring different sides together to find solutions that best meet the needs of our communities. AFP-WV, and our activists across the state, have engaged in robust grassroots activities touching over 10 percent of the state’s residents – urging support for individualized learning through student-centered educational pathways like Education Savings Accounts, public charter schools, and public school open enrollment.

AFP-WV State Director Jason Huffman issued the following statement:

“Unnecessary one-size fits all regulations stifle innovation and hinder the capacity of teachers to create the optimal learning environment for their students. Removing these barriers would be a good step toward giving educators the opportunity to unleash their creativity to help students discover, develop, and apply their unique talents in the classroom. However, this approach is only part of the solution. We remain committed to working with all parties to advance bold reforms that can truly transform the lives of all of our students and empower teachers, by adopting Education Savings Accounts, public charter schools, and public school open enrollment in this special session.”
