We, the undersigned of the Commonwealth of Virginia, affirming that Educational Savings Accounts (PCESAs) secure our rights under the Virginia Code § 1-240.1 that states: “A parent has a fundamental right to make decisions concerning the upbringing, education, and care of the parent’s child,” acknowledging that education choice is supported by over 72% of Virginians,

AND recognizing that Parental Choice Educational Savings Accounts will: 

  • Give parents the freedom to decide how their children receive their educations
  • Allow families to determine the educational priorities for each child
  • Improve student academic outcomes in every demographic in the Commonwealth[1]
  • Increase the Gross Domestic Product ofall communities[2]
  • Encourage individual and school academic excellence through competition
  • Remove financial barriers to education

 

By signing this petition, we voice our support for Parental Choice Education Savings Accounts and demand that our elected officials represent us in Richmond by advocating for and advancing legislation that will make PCESAs available to all families in the Commonwealth. 

 

Respectfully Signed,
