Just two years ago, not a single state had universal school choice. Today, nine do.


To understand how groundbreaking this education renaissance is, just look at the state of Iowa. Gov. Kim Reynolds (R-IA) began 2023 by signing into law the Students First Act , which allows all Iowa families to receive funds in an education savings account, or ESA, to attend the school of their choice.


But Reynolds didn’t stop at school choice, either. She also signed into law a common-sense parental rights bill, SF 496 , that prohibits instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in public schools in grades K-6 and prohibits school libraries from stocking sexually explicit materials. The law also requires libraries to post their card catalogs online for the sake of transparency.


These groundbreaking reforms have earned the Hawkeye State the Heritage Foundation’s 2023 Education Freedom Award.


Join Kevin and Gov. Reynolds as they explore the pivotal role of school choice in revitalizing education systems, amplifying parental autonomy, and breaking free from conventional educational norms. Tune in as they discuss the paradigm shift towards empowering families in shaping their children’s educational journey and the nationwide implications of this bold movement towards education freedom.
