Dialogue: Education Savings Accounts, and What They Mean for Tennessee

Jun 12, 2019

In his first State of the State message, Governor Bill Lee asked for a modified voucher program called education savings accounts. The General Assembly granted his wish, but not in the form Lee originally laid out.

Today on Dialogue, we’re going to dive deep into education savings accounts. We’ll learn what is in the plan and how it may work. We’ll also look at why this victory for Lee and school choice advocates doesn’t spell the end of the debate.

Joining host Brandon Hollingsworth is Marta Aldrich. She has written extensively about ESAs for education reporting website Chalkbeat.
