PHOENIX, Jan. 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week, Gov. Katie Hobbs released her budget proposal to slash Empowerment Scholarship Accounts and completely repeal the tax credit scholarship program, which will force tens of thousands of families out of their existing schools, including low-income families and students with disabilities.   

Gov. Hobbs' budget proposal will stop Arizona families from having a say in their children's education.

"Gov. Hobbs' budget proposal will stop Arizona families from having a say in their children's education while also losing access to crucial educational services and therapies," said Shannon Pahls, public policy director, yes. every kid. "Gov. Hobbs has consistently placed special interests and campaign donations ahead of Arizona families and students. The governor's proposed budget would kick tens of thousands of kids, including those with disabilities, out of the school that works for them. Even though Katie Hobbs clearly does not trust families, no one knows children better than their families, and they, not Katie Hobbs, should be the ones making decisions for their kids' education."
