ExcelinEd in Action Applauds Indiana Senate Education Committee for Advancing Education Savings Accounts
Upcoming study to evaluate education choice program for parents of students with special needs
Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, the Indiana Senate Education Committee passed SB 93, a bill that includes a directive to evaluate Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) via a summer study committee. An ESA program can provide parents of students with special needs with access to education options that best suit the needs of their child.
ExcelinEd in Action National Legislative Director J. Alex Kelly issued the following statement in support of the study.
“Indiana is committed to improving education for all children, including the most vulnerable. We applaud Senate Education Committee Chair Dennis Kruse, Senator Jeff Raatz and the committee members for taking this step and evaluating if Education Savings Accounts are right for the Hoosier State. We believe in giving parents the opportunity to ensure their children learn, grow and have a chance for success and this program can do that, as it is doing in other states. We look forward to this legislation moving quickly through the process and participating in the study this summer.”
