Tell Your Congressman to Support Education Freedom in Georgia

Georgia lawmakers have taken a bold step towards transforming education with the introduction of the Promise Scholarship Act, SB233. This groundbreaking legislation aims to empower families by providing them with the financial means to seek better educational opportunities for their children, ensuring that no student is confined to underperforming schools due to their geographic or economic situation.

More specifically, SB233 will establish education freedom accounts (EFAs), granting $6,500 annually to eligible families whose children attend the lowest-performing 25% of schools in the state. This targeted approach ensures that resources are directed where they are most needed, offering a lifeline to those in dire educational circumstances. These funds can be utilized for a variety of educational expenses, including private school tuition, homeschooling costs, textbooks, tutoring services, and transportation. By offering parents the flexibility to choose the best educational path for their children, SB233 will pave the way for a brighter future for Georgia’s youth.

It’s time for Georgians to rally together and advocate for the passage of SB233. Contact your Congressman today and lend your voice to the movement for educational freedom in Georgia. Let’s ensure that every child in our state has the chance to fulfill their promise. Send a letter here.
