Over 6.6 million students receive special education from public schools across America. For most of these students, the public school they are assigned to works great. But what if they need another option, or more intensive services than those offered by their public school? Enter private education choice. We have just released two new videos on our Opportunity Learning Hub that explore not only why lawmakers across the country are creating these programs, but also what parents need to know to make more informed decisions about these programs for their children.
If you’re interested in learning more about these programs, check out more of our videos on the Opportunity Learning Hub, including our profiles on how parents are using these programs to educate their children in unique ways.
