Our goal is simple: we want individualized education.

Why Settle for One-Size-Fits-All? Every child is unique, with distinct interests and learning needs. At the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, we champion the power of choice in education. We believe that you know what’s best for your children, and you should have the freedom to tailor their schooling to ignite their passions and enhance their strengths.

Imagine having the flexibility to use educational funds for a range of learning opportunities that suit your child perfectly. That’s the freedom ESAs offer. Whether it’s private school tuition, tutoring, or innovative online programs, ESAs empower you to choose the best educational paths for your children, free from the constraints of traditional public and private schooling systems.
ESAs not only give families more control but also drive schools to compete and innovate. This competition leads to higher quality education, lower costs, and more tailored learning experiences. When schools strive to meet the needs of their students, everyone wins—especially our children.


End the Zip Code Education Lottery

Your child’s future should not be dictated by your address. By eliminating zip codes as the primary factor in determining school districts, we open up a world of opportunity for every child, no matter where they live. This reform allows families to choose schools that resonate with their child’s needs, promoting a richer, more diverse educational experience.
In our rapidly changing world, alternative education models like microschools and learning pods are essential. These models offer more personalized and engaging learning environments that can adapt to the specific needs of groups of students or individual learners. However, they face potential restrictions that could limit their impact and growth.
We are committed to protecting these innovative education approaches from overregulation. It’s crucial that microschools, learning pods, and homeschooling remain viable and vibrant options. Eliminating restrictive rules and supporting these alternatives ensures a dynamic education market where every family can find their fit.


The Benefits of Educational Choice

Enhanced Learning: Tailored education means that learning is aligned with each student’s pace and interests, which leads to better engagement and outcomes.
Reduced Costs: By allowing families to choose how and where their education dollars are spent, ESAs can lead to significant savings for both families and taxpayers.
Greater Access: With more choices, families can overcome the limitations set by economic barriers or geographic location, ensuring that all children have access to quality education.
Support the movement for educational reform by getting involved with our initiatives. Learn about the issues, share the information with your community, and advocate for the changes that will transform our education system. Together, we can ensure that every child has the opportunity to thrive and lead a life of meaning and purpose.

Diving Into the Areas

What Are Educational Savings Accounts (ESAs)? Educational Savings Accounts (ESAs) are innovative tools that allow families to take control of their children’s education. Unlike traditional schooling methods where funds go directly to public or private schools, ESAs allocate funds directly to families. This funding can be used for a variety of educational expenses, including tuition for private schools, home-schooling materials, online learning programs, tutoring services, and even special needs therapy. Essentially, ESAs put parents in the driver’s seat, enabling them to tailor their children’s educational journey to fit individual learning styles and needs.
The Need for ESA Reform While ESAs offer a promising path toward educational customization and freedom, they require thoughtful reform to maximize their potential. Current limitations and regulations can restrict who can benefit from ESAs and how the funds may be used. Broadening eligibility and expanding allowable expenses are crucial steps in ensuring that all families can access this empowering tool.

Benefits of ESA Reform Include:

• Increased Accessibility: Reforming ESA policies to include a wider range of qualifying expenses and participants means more families can utilize these accounts, regardless of their income or location. This opens up opportunities for countless children to receive a personalized education that might otherwise be out of reach.
• Enhanced Educational Outcomes: By providing families with the resources to seek specialized educational services that cater specifically to their child’s needs, ESAs can dramatically improve learning outcomes. This personalized approach helps children excel academically and develop a lifelong love of learning.
• Stimulation of Educational Innovation: With the demand for diverse educational services increasing due to ESA utilization, providers are incentivized to innovate and improve their offerings. This not only drives competition but also leads to higher quality and more varied educational products and services.
• Economic Efficiency: ESAs can lead to more efficient use of educational funds. By allocating money directly to families instead of through traditional school funding models, ESAs minimize administrative overhead and ensure that more dollars go directly to educational activities.
