- California will spend $80 billion this year on public education, yet our schools consistently rank among the nation's worst.
- Radical social ideas are being forced on our kids.
- Students are trapped by their zip code in schools that are unsafe and failing.
- Most parents cannot afford higher performing private education.
It's just not fair.
There is a solution:
- Instead of tax dollars going to public schools, that money would go to parents to send their child to a school of their choice.
- At least $12,000 per student per year to attend a public, private, charter or parochial school.
- Any money not used for tuition may be saved for college and/or vocational training.
An Education Savings Account will be created for every school age child (K-12) in California.
Each year the State will deposit into that account a sum equal to the average amount spent by the state on each school age child (at least $12,000).
This money can be used to attend a school chosen by the parents. The child can remain at the current public school or attend an accredited charter, private or parochial school.
Any money not used for tuition may be accumulated and used for other qualified educational expenses and/or saved and used for college and/or post-high school vocational training.
