School Choice

To ensure all children have the opportunity to achieve their full potential, Paul Milde supports giving parents a choice in the school their child attends. Paul favors Virginia enacting a law similar to Arizona’s, which rebates parents who choose non-public schools a portion of the cost of alternative learning programs/schools. For parents who select traditional public schools for their children, Paul favors targeting increased educational spending directly in classrooms. As a member of the Board of Supervisors, Paul took a lot of heat for repeatedly voting for categorically funding the School Board to ensure taxpayers went to the classrooms – not to administrators and school bureaucracies.
