I had a good meeting with Clay. He had a lot of questions and I openly and honestly answered them all. I’m a longtime and consistent supporter of conservative reforms that expand school choice. When a school choice bill failed in 2017, I promised advocates I’d work to get a bill passed in 2018. That’s exactly what I did. I kept my word. The bill wasn’t perfect — and I said that to Clay — but we reached a broad agreement, while no side got everything it wanted. For me, I would like to see scholarships focused more directly on children in financial need.
