Who we are…
Our coalition is focused on empowering parents to find the best education options for their children. We want Iowa lawmakers to focus on increasing school choice options for students and parents by giving them the tools they need.
We believe the best tool in this effort is an Education Savings Account (ESA) program. Under this system, every Iowa student would have an opportunity to be placed in the school that best meets their needs and maximizes their potential. With an ESA, the taxpayer dollars in education would begin to follow the student and we would empower families to make the best choice. After all, isn’t that where these decisions should be made?
