What’s Going on in West Virginia?
In 2018, a teacher movement known as the #RedforEd movement took off. But after the yelling quieted down, there wasn’t much left to hear about. Ever since, not much has been going on. There hasn’t been much to report.
EIA further addresses the lack of news on West Virginia. In fact, they also quote Jayme Metzgar from The Federalist:
Last week, with very little noise or fanfare, the West Virginia legislature passed the most expansive Education Savings Account program in America. While ESAs in most states are only open to a small percentage of children, the new West Virginia Hope Scholarship will be available to 90 percent of schoolchildren in the state. Every child currently enrolled in public school is eligible, plus those newly aging in.
