Universal school choice 'should be our highest policy priority'

A new survey released by the Friedman Foundation and OCPA finds that Oklahomans support school choice. OCPA president Michael Carnuccio discusses some of the survey results here.

One particular choice that Oklahomans favor is Arizona-style Education Savings Accounts. Indeed, Oklahoma may become the second state to offer Education Savings Accounts, which would certainly result in more positive tomorrows for the Oklahoma youngsters who need them most. ESAs would even help Oklahoma parents save for college.

But whether it's ESAs, vouchers, tax credits, or a menu featuring all of those options, OCPA's Milton Friedman Distinguished Fellow says "the establishment of universal school choice should be our highest policy priority."
