Iowa Parent Victory: School Choice Legislation Signed!
January 24, 2023
On Tuesday, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed the Students First Act creating universal school choice throughout the state. This new law through the Education Savings Account program provides $7,598 per student in taxpayer funding to help pay for private school education if a student unenrolls from public school.
“For the first time we are funding students, instead of a system,” Reynolds said at a Tuesday press conference. “We are rejecting the idea that the answer to improving education is simply pumping more money into the same system year after year without making significant changes.”
