February 24, 2022

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 24, 2022)EdChoice Kentucky President Andrew Vandiver released the following statement today regarding the Kentucky Supreme Court’s decision to take up the Education Opportunity Account Act lawsuit:  

“Kentucky families are eagerly awaiting the final go-ahead that they can receive the resources and flexibility needed for their children to succeed. Kentucky legislators boldly stood for students in 2021 when they passed this law, and every state supreme court that has considered a similar system has ultimately sided with parents who want a say in their children’s education.

“We are inspired by the courage of Akia McNeary and Nancy Deaton for standing in this lawsuit on behalf of the thousands of parents, grandparents and guardians who simply want a better future for their children. And we are grateful for the Kentucky Attorney General and the Institute for Justice for defending the Education Opportunity Account program.”
