Fifteen states offer school voucher programs allowing parents of school-age children to use part or all of the public funding allocated for their children’s education to send them to private school, according to EdChoice, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that advocates for school choice. Five states -- two of which, Florida and Mississippi, are among the 15 with voucher programs -- also have education savings account (ESA) programs, which let parents receive a deposit of public funds that can be used to cover private school tuition, private tutoring, online courses and other approved educational expenses.
