In 2011, Arizona became the first state to enact an education savings account (ESA) program, a new form of educational choice that provides public funds to parents so they can decide how and where to educate their child. Five other states have enacted ESA programs since then, creating a new landscape of educational choices around the country. As these programs develop, however, scholars, advocates, and educators must consider how ESAs alter other educational delivery systems and interact with education providers, existing private school choice programs, and the families and students who rely on them.

Join us at AEI for a keynote address from 43rd Governor of Florida Jeb Bush on why customization and personalization are needed for the future of choice, followed by a panel discussion on ESAs, educational opportunity, and new and innovative forms of learning in and outside American schools.

Join the conversation on social media with #JebBushatAEI.
