Statement from Gov. Jeb Bush, chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, on Gov. Doug Ducey signing SB 1431 and expanding the Empowerment Scholarship Account program to all families and students.
“This is an historic moment for the state of Arizona, its families and most importantly the generations of students who will benefit from the power of finding the right educational option for their unique needs.
“Parents, not institutions, make the best decisions for their children. Empowered by the opportunity to find the best fit, each child will be on the best path for success in their careers and in life.
“I want to thank Gov. Ducey, Sen. Debbie Lesko and the many partners throughout the great state of Arizona who worked tirelessly to help each child have the tools and opportunity to pursue their dreams.”
