Petition to save Nevada's ESAs: Let Our Children Succeed!*
As parents, educators and taxpayers of Nevada, we the undersigned urge Nevada’s public officials to defend and expand the most inclusive school choice program in the nation.
Give students the opportunity to succeed in the Silver State. Protect Nevada’s ESA program!
When Judge James Wilson issued an injunction against Education Savings Accounts in January of 2016, the nation’s most comprehensive school choice program was put on hold. With more than 7,800 students already enrolled in the program — and thousands more ready to apply — it is imperative that Nevada’s public officials stand up for parents, students and educators who were depending on ESAs.

* In the summer of 2016, the Nevada Supreme Court ruled on the constitutionality of Education Savings Accounts. The court found that ESAs, in themselves, are entirely within the law — however the way in which lawmakers had planned on funding the program was unacceptable.
As a result, the program remains in place, and the Treasurer’s office continues to process applications. However, the program remains unfunded. What this means for the families that have applied so far, is that ESAs will only become a reality in Nevada if lawmakers take action, and fully fund this promising reform in 2017.
