Putting students first in 
every education decision.

EdChoice Kentucky is a coalition focused on educating the Commonwealth about educational choice programs. While educational choice isn't an issue for most wealthy families, the financial reality of a chosen education path has kept many low-to-middle income families from providing their children with the education that best meets their needs.

"How Can Kentucky Fix This Problem"

Fortunately, there is a solution: Education Opportunity Accounts.

Education Opportunity Accounts allow parents to have privately donated funds deposited into an account they can use to pay for the educational services that best suits their children. The program incentivizes private donations to Account Granting Organizations, making more funding available to provide Kentucky students the educational services that are best for them, no matter their financial situation.


"Will It Work?"

  • 19 other states already have education programs funded by private donations with overwhelmingly positive results
  • 14 studies found that students performed better across the board when choice programs were an option.
  • 31 studies found that choice programs are often followed by public school improvements.

"Is There Support"

Recent polling shows that both urban and rural Kentuckians overwhelmingly support educational choice options.
