The Buckeye Institute: EdChoice Delay Leaves Ohio Families in Limbo

Jan 31, 2020

Columbus, OH – Greg R. Lawson, research fellow at The Buckeye Institute, issued the following statement after the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate voted to delay the application period for the EdChoice program by 60 days. 

“The future of thousands of Ohio’s students remains up in the air today with the delay of the EdChoice application period. While some very reasonable alternatives are being explored to improve school choice in Ohio, it is unfortunate that families who need predictability in order to make the best decisions for their children don't have that at present.

“Hopefully, policymakers can quickly find a solution that protects Ohio’s students and school choice before chaos and uncertainty harms innocent families who just want to do the right thing for their children.”
