About the Video
All Utah parents should be able to be directly involved in how their child is educated with public funds.
Monopolies in the education system have stifled innovation and limited a parent’s options to customize their child’s learning. Education reforms like charter schools and open enrollment have had moderate success but lack the innovative nature to truly reinvent the system.
Flexible Education Spending Accounts (FSA) offer an opportunity for parents to go beyond choosing where their child is educated to having a say in how their child is educated.
“I think one-size education works about as well as one-size-fits-all parenting. It’s not effective.”
“Parents know their kids the best, they know what they need. So being able to give them that power to choose what’s best for their child will help their child reach their fullest potential.”
“This is a win win situation. As students participate in the program… some of that money is staying in the public school system, and that means per pupil spending will go up.”
“Every kid is going to need some kind of flexibility and better engagement.”
“We need to stop expecting all children to be served from the same decades-old system that really hasn’t changed that much.”
