TAMPA, Fl. — In response to the Florida Legislature introducing landmark Educational Savings Account (ESA) legislation, Executive Director Craig Hulse released the following statement on behalf of yes. every kid.
“Families should be the primary decision-makers in their child’s education — and the proposed expansion of
this family empowerment program is a win for all Florida families. Putting power in the hands of parents allows them to access an educational experience that meets the individual needs of their child. With this monumental legislation, Speaker Paul Renner and the Florida legislature are once again listening to families’ desire for more innovative approaches to learning. This nation-leading legislation will not only fund families and expand educational opportunities but remove bureaucratic barriers to learning.
We look forward to working with Gov. Ron DeSantis, Education Commissioner Manny Diaz, Jr., Speaker Renner, Senate President Kathleen Passidomo, Chair Kaylee Tuck, and the Florida legislature to advance more bottom-up solutions that respect the dignity of every kid.”
