February 4, 2021 11:59AM

This morning the Tennessee Supreme Court accepted the appeal to hear the Education Savings Account (ESA) case. Beacon appealed the ruling of lower courts that the ESA program violates the state’s home rule provision.

Beacon Vice President of Legal Affairs Braden Boucek stated, “Not only is the ESA program constitutional, but it is also necessary for families who need a choice. Whether due to problems with district-mandated remote learning due to COVID-19 or just trying to find a school that meets the needs of their children, families deserve a say in their children’s education. We are confident that the Tennessee Supreme Court will rule that this program is constitutional and allow it to move forward.”
