In 2022, the Arizona State legislature narrowly passed “the nation’s largest school voucher scheme” according to the Washington Post – despite the fact that voters rejected that idea by nearly 2 to 1 in a 2018 statewide referendum on the issue.
Now that the universal ESA voucher program has been in effect for over a year, data and analysis of the program is emerging that shed some light on whether taxpayers are getting their money’s worth.
Arizonans deserve to know the truth about vouchers, and, regardless of politics or political party, contact your legislators to share your thoughts.
