Empowerment Scholarship Accounts
I have written several times about education savings accounts (ESAs). In 2011, Arizona enacted the first ESA program and named them “Empowerment Scholarship Accounts.” Watch the video below and I think you will see why these scholarships truly empower parents to access the educational services needed for their child.
Before you watch the video, I want to point out one very interesting thing that you may miss. When the mother of the special needs student is interacting with the physical therapist, you see her swipe a card on the doctor’s phone. That card is the debit card linked to the family’s ESA.
