Americans for Prosperity-Tennessee Issues Statement on School Choice Disappointment 

Apr 22, 2024 by AFP

Nashville, TN – Americans for Prosperity-Tennessee (AFP-TN) released a statement today on the school choice bill lacking a clear route for approval this session.  

AFP-TN State Director Tori Venable released the following statement:  

“While we are disappointed that families will have to wait yet another year for educational freedom, we are going to keep working until education savings accounts are available for all Tennesseans. Throughout this campaign, our grassroots team has knocked over 85,700 doors. We’ve heard from families across the state who want more options and more control over their children’s education.

“School choice matters. Parents, not the government, will always know what is best for their children. Over the past few years, we have made incredible progress securing ESAs for students stuck in the worst performing schools. Still, too many children are being left behind, and we will not stop fighting for all students until we see legislation passed. How long must our kids wait?”
