A few legislators may block thousands of children from better learning opportunities. After clearing the Senate, Arizona's first statewide voluntary voucher program has stalled in the House. An Arizona School Boards Association lobbyist told the Arizona Republic citizens simply voiced their concerns. Don't bet on it. At the Friedman Foundation's request, Arizona pollster Dr. Margaret Kenski asked voters directly. 91 percent support one or more forms of school choice, including scholarship tax credits and education grants so families can choose from more schools, including private ones. Republicans and Democrats alike also are more likely to support legislative and gubernatorial candidates who support school choice. Legislators should give special interests the boot, and give children a chance.
