Unions on edge as Arizona lawmakers weigh major expansion of education overhaul

Unions on edge as Arizona lawmakers weigh major expansion of education overhaul | Homeschooling High School | Scoop.it

Lawmakers in Arizona are poised to expand a controversial education program that lets parents divert state funds to virtually any school option they wish. The program does far more than a traditional school voucher system. Here’s how it works: the ESA program transfers money the state would normally pay for a child to attend public school to a private bank account. Qualifying students are given a debit card and have the freedom to spend the money on education-related expenses which include everything from tuition at a private school to books for home-schooled students.
