Today’s episode of The Kevin Roberts Show celebrates Arizona’s second place standing in Heritage’s Education Freedom Report Card and what it took Governor Doug Ducey and the legislature to set the gold standard for education freedom in the United States with their recent adoption of universal school choice.
