School choice has been central to the American education policy debate for a quarter century, but the debate has focused on only school choice. In a potentially profound development, education savings accounts (ESAs) give families almost unfettered control over the public funds allocated for their child’s education, upending assumptions that have framed the school choice debate. Today, many questions and potential challenges accompany new ESA programs, which as of 2015, existed in five states and were introduced in another 16.
AEI and the Foundation for Excellence in Education have commissioned experts to author a series of essays for a first-of-its-kind volume on ESAs. Join us to hear from these authors, in addition to policymakers, practitioners, and advocates for a timely conversation on ESAs and the future of American education reform.
