An ESA bill has never passed a Chamber in the Georgia General Assembly. Two weeks ago, SB 233 became the most significant school choice measure to do so in our state’s history.
Now, with Sine Die approaching, it needs a hearing and a vote in the House Education Committee.
A growing number of states are recognizing that universal school choice is the single greatest way to turn our country around, empower families, fuel a stronger workforce, stop the rampant wokist indoctrination, and support the individual needs of every child.
It is time Georgia join them.
SB 233 is a great first step. Though it applied universally when initially drafted, it was amended to now only apply to students attending the bottom performing quartile of schools.
For some, that might be a reason to pull back – “this should apply to everyone.”
I understand that sentiment and agree.
However, to me, this means it is time to press forward.
Passing SB 233 helps a great number of students TODAY! It also becomes a catalyst for greater demand for universal school choice. Pass SB 233, and the families who attend “just barely passable enough” schools will be demanding they be included moving forward. Passing SB 233 sets us up for an even bigger win TOMORROW.
Let’s deliver a victory that can have a profound effect on the lives of Georgia children. Let’s do something that matters and can have lasting significance. Let’s win for school choice!
