Our Statement on ESA Ballot Initiatives
FPM is closely monitoring the ballot initiative regarding Education Savings Accounts (ESAs). Our mission is to defend the freedom of parents to train, educate, and care for their children privately, without governmental interference.
After much analysis on the initiative, and in consultation with HSLDA, FPM doesn’t support the ESA initiative due to concerns that its passage would lead to restricted freedoms for the private homeschool community.
For our other reasons for opposing this initiative, please read our recently published article “Should We Take Government Money for Private Education?” at https://fpmca.org/takegovt$
We are continuing to follow this and any other school choice ballot initiatives in the interest of homeschool freedoms.
