WASHINGTON—Over the weekend, Utah Gov. Spencer Cox signed into law the Utah Fits All Act, which will create multi-use scholarships worth roughly $8,000 annually for all K-12 students.
Jason Bedrick, a research fellow in the Center for Education Policy at The Heritage Foundation, made the following statement about this latest education choice law:
“This is a huge win for parents and students in Utah. Utah understands that parents need to have more control over their children’s education. This multi-use scholarship empowers families to choose the learning environments that align with their values and best fit the needs of their children.
“Education choice is spreading across the states, with Utah being the latest state to pass an education choice law this year. Other states that don’t yet have a strong education choice program should take note.”
