Huge Arizona School Voucher Plan In Effect After Foes Fail

Parents prevail as effort to derail school choice expansion in Arizona comes up short

  • An effort to block the expansion of Arizona’s private school voucher law failed to collect enough signatures to refer it to the ballot.
  • Under the law signed by Republican Governor Doug Ducey, Arizona has the most expansive private school voucher law in the country.
  • Ninety percent of the state money, which was previously allocated toward public schools, is given to the parents of Arizona’s more than 1.2 million school-aged children to use for private or other school costs.
