Arizona Voters Repeal Expansion of School Voucher Program

In Arizona on Tuesday, voters repealed Senate Bill 1431 which expanded the state's Empowerment Scholarship Accounts to make all public school students eligible to apply. The vote on the measure, known as Proposition 305, was 67% in favor of repeal, 33% opposed to repeal. The program allows students with disabilities (and certain other students) to opt out of public schools and instead receive state funds for use in private schools or for home schooling.
