Florida's new election law praised as model for all states
The governor of Florida is getting rave reviews from conservatives after signing an election integrity bill into law.
Neal McCluskey, director of the Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom, says West Virginia and Kentucky's recently-passed legislation launching education savings accounts are evidence of the awakening to the significance of school options.
"They may just be the beginning of a massive expansion of school choice, because there're about 28 other states that also have school choice expansion legislation," he notes. "Obviously, all those will not end up passing, but there may be a lot more to come."
While McCluskey admits to having been worried about the survival of private schools during the lockdowns, only about 133 schools so far out of 32,000 will reportedly never reopen.
"These sorts of school choice expansions are what is needed to make sure that we can continue to have affordable private schooling for people who want it," he insists.
He thinks families should be given control of education dollars so that private schools may live or die based on whether families choose them.
