Job Creators Network Commends Georgia House for Passing Education Freedom Scholarships

Alfredo Ortiz, CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement on today’s passage of Senate Bill 233: The Georgia Promise Scholarship Act: 

“Today is an enormous victory for Georgia families with students trapped in failing schools for no other reason than the zip codes they live in. This education freedom legislation will give these students a lifeline to get the education they deserve to escape poverty and achieve the American Dream. I am living proof that giving a kid the chance to flee a failing school for a better education creates greater opportunity and prosperity for a lifetime. This bill is a great start and can be built upon and expanded to even more families in the years ahead. On behalf of all supporters of education freedom and all Georgia families, I call on the state Senate to quickly hold its concurrence vote and send this legislation to Gov. Kemp’s desk.”

Job Creators Network launched a radio ad in Georgia calling on House legislators to pass SB233. Listen to the ad here. Read a transcript of the ad here.

Alfredo had a recent op-ed, “Education Reform is Georgia’s Top Priority,” in the Georgia Star-News, making the case for SB233. Read it here.
