Opportunity Scholarships Expanded in Nevada

Statement from Tommy Schultz, National Communications Director for the American Federation for Children:

“Families in Nevada today are thankful for Governor Sandoval, Senate Minority Leader Michael Robertson, and Assemblyman Paul Anderson’s leadership in expanding educational choice today. The ceremonial signing of the Opportunity Scholarships expansion shows that these state leaders trust that parents know what is best. Nearly 4,000 more children from working-class and economically disadvantaged households will soon have further access to educational opportunities across the state, and we look forward to further expansions in the years to come.”
