WASHINGTON — Today, Heritage Action released a statement from Executive Director Jessica Anderson applauding Sen. Bill Cassidy, Sen. Tim Scott, Sen. Steve Daines, and Sen. Todd Young for introducing the Educational Choice for Children Act in the U.S. Senate.
“For far too long, American students have had their educational options limited by their ZIP code. Now, after witnessing unending school lockdowns and failure after failure from the education establishment, parents are demanding education freedom across the country. It is encouraging to see lawmakers responding and introducing bold proposals like the Educational Choice for Children Act, which would create a tax-credit program for those who give to programs that fund K-12 education scholarships for students in need.
More policymakers at the state and national levels should be working on innovative proposals like this to put parents back in the driver’s seat of their children’s education. Education freedom takes power back from the hands of woke federal bureaucrats and returns it to the parents, where it belongs. When conservatives regain control of Congress, they must continue advancing proposals to support education freedom, parents, and children alike.”
