State Information Request: State Policy Approaches to Education Savings Accounts

A state board member asked for research on education savings accounts and examples of current state programs. Our response includes a short overview of private school choice options, which includes education savings accounts; court rulings that have affected implementation of these programs; three common policy components of existing state programs; and examples of legislation introduced in other states that sought, but failed, to initiate ESA programs. To provide timely assistance to our constituents, State Information Requests are typically completed in 48 hours. They reflect an issue scan versus a comprehensive analysis.
