Lawmakers supported by Commonwealth Children’s Choice Fund champion education reform!
In 2020, opponents of school choice spent nearly $5 million trying to defeat Sen. Scott Martin and Rep. Andrew Lewis, both of whom are dedicated school choice champions.
Commonwealth Children’s Choice Fund invested more than $500,000 into Martin’s and Lewis’s campaigns. Despite being heavily outspent, both won re-election.
In 2021, Sen. Martin and Rep. Lewis spearheaded the most transformative educational opportunity efforts ever proposed in the Legislature.
Taken together, their bills would:
- Create education opportunity accounts to ensure Pennsylvania students can access the educational services they need
- Lift arbitrary caps on tax credit scholarship programs, allowing the programs to expand immediately and automatically each year as demand increases
- Fully acknowledge public charter schools as equal public education options
- Empower parents—regardless of their zip code—to choose the educational opportunities that will best prepare their children for success
