School Choice Ohio Applauds Senator Huffman’s Plan to Expand School Choice
COLUMBUS, Ohio (February 21, 2017) – School Choice Ohio Executive Director Kaleigh Lemaster issued the following statement upon Senator Matt Huffman’s announcement he will introduce legislation to create a new statewide scholarship program:
“School Choice Ohio applauds Senator Huffman for his plan to create a new statewide scholarship program that would give low and middle income families the opportunity to choose the best learning environment for their child.
“Thousands of Ohio families are sending their children to the schools of their choice thanks to the state’s existing scholarship programs, but because of limited eligibility, there are still many students who are stuck in a school that is not the best fit for their learning needs.
“Ohio families from all zip codes and all income levels should have access to a range of quality education options for their children. We look forward to working with Senator Huffman on making this legislation a reality for Ohio students."
