United States Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced at CPAC during an interview with Heritage President Kay Coles James that she supports Heritage’s plan that would allow military families to use federal funds as education savings accounts to pay for personalized schooling for their children.
The plan would allow over 126,000 military-connected families to use federal funds for the schooling of their choice.
Heritage education expert Lindsey Burke said:
In order to ensure that those who secure our nation are able to access education options that best serve them, policymakers should empower these families with education-choice options,” wrote Lindsey Burke, director of Heritage’s Education Policy Center, and former Heritage research assistant Anne Ryland in a report that is leading the way for lawmakers.
Thanks to your support, Heritage will continue to lead the way on education reform and allow parents to choose the best education option for their children.
Do you believe military families should have more school choices? What other education reforms do you think should be implemented?
