EMPOWER PARENTS WITH MORE OPTIONS FOR THEIR CHILD
Every child is different. Parents should have the ability to choose the education that they believe best fits their child. We will work to pass legislation to create Education Savings Accounts (ESA), which will allow parents to use a portion of their child’s state funding for educational purposes like private school tuition or tutoring. ESAs will provide the best opportunity for Oklahoma families to have access to the education of their choice.
INCREASE THE AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY CHARTER SCHOOLS
Charter schools have been helping thousands of Oklahoma children for years. Last year, we lead the effort to expand the opportunity for charter schools beyond the Tulsa and Oklahoma City areas, which was previously not allowed under state law. This year, we will support legislation to allow charter schools to be authorized by our largest municipal governments.
