Webinar Overview: According to The Hunt Institute’s 2023 Across the Aisle survey, just under half of voters support using public dollars for school vouchers, and a majority of voters support using public dollars for education savings accounts. These levers for private school choice and
their role in the future of public education have been a growing topic of conversation around the country. As more and more states explore pathways for expanding school choice – either through vouchers, tax credits, or the fastest growing trend – education savings accounts, it is vital that policymakers grapple with and investigate the long-term impact of such initiatives. Join The Hunt Institute for this timely discussion about how these programs may impact families, public schools, rural communities, and the school choice debate at large.
