Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders signed legislation Wednesday creating an Education Freedom Account program, the terms of which will allow parents to use most of their child’s state education dollars for private school tuition and other approved education expenses.

Eligibility for the program will be phased in over three years, after which time all school age children in Arkansas will be eligible.

Iowa and Utah passed similar bills this year, with West Virginia and Arizona having done so in 2022.
