Erica would love to see a school choice program like the Education Scholarship Account (ESA) expanded for families who are making the necessary sacrifices to provide their children with the best education.

“I would love to see something like that, not only for me but for others,” Erica added. “There are many others who aren’t in the position I’m in where I can send my child to St. Francis. I know many people who have taken drastic measures to send their kids to private schools. But still, there are many others who would like to but can’t.”

An ESA expansion would change that. It would make new options available to more parents who do not feel their assigned district school is meeting the needs of their children.

But even without the help, this was the best decision Erica has made.

“I’m glad I did it. I’m willing to sacrifice. These are my children and I want them to do well and be successful.”
