Senator Wadsack Remains a Champion for School Choice

PHOENIX, ARIZONA— Senator Wadsack (R-17) is sharing her support for the Empowerment Scholarship Accounts program (ESAs) amid Attorney General Mayes' threats to investigate families participating in it.

"As a parent with children who have benefited from this program, I know how impactful and important it is for Arizona families," said Senator Wadsack. "I've been a champion for school choice since I first filed for office in 2019 and will always fight to support it. Arizona can rest assured; this program is safe and it's not going away. Department of Education Superintendent Tom Horne and ESA Director, Christine Accurso, have done a tremendous job ensuring this program is only being used for educational purposes, something the past administration, unfortunately, did not do."

Christine Accurso added, “The Department of Education has not found any fraud, waste, or abuse in the ESA program. This has been confirmed by all of the audits that have been performed dating back to 2016.”
