America First Applauds Governor Bill Lee for Introducing Major School Choice Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the America First Policy Institute’s (AFPI) Center for Education Opportunity released the following statement from Laurie Todd-Smith, Ph.D., Director of the Centers for the American Child and Education Opportunity at AFPI, praising Tennessee Governor Bill Lee for introducing the Education Freedom Scholarship Act. This bill would grant educational freedom to tens of thousands of Tennessee students for the 2024-2025 school year and offer universal eligibility the following year.

“Governor Lee’s bill, if enacted, would be a major win for parents and children. The Education Freedom Scholarship Act would offer parents a stronger voice in the conversation about their child’s education and would empower families to choose the school that best fits their child’s unique needs. All Tennessee students, regardless of their zip code or parents’ income, deserve a choice and the chance to receive a quality education.”
