Sec. Betsy DeVos & Kellyanne Conway on Understanding Education Freedom Scholarships | LIVE STREA
In February 2019, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos proposed the Education Freedom Scholarships (EFS), which would provide $5 billion in dollar-for-dollar federal tax credits to individuals and businesses that contribute to state-approved scholarship-granting organizations. Unlike previous efforts to promote school choice, this proposal wouldn’t create any new federal programs or limit the choices families can make.
So, what sets EFS apart from existing school choice initiatives, and how will they be implemented on the federal and state levels? Join us at AEI for a conversation with Secretary DeVos and other federal and state decision makers and state leaders to address these questions.
