Why doesn't North Dakota have an educational choice program?
Previous efforts to introduce school choice in North Dakota, both via a voucher as well as a tax-credit scholarship for low-income families, did not come to fruition in 2013. If you would like to learn more about school choice in other states, search our School Choice in America Dashboard.
Is anyone trying to propose an educational choice program in North Dakota now?
Yes. During the 2019 legislative session, the North Dakota Legislative Assembly passed HB 1464, an act to provide a legislative management study of the feasibility and desirability of developing a school choice program. In addition, Sen. Oley Larsen and Rep. Daniel Johnston introduced a near-universal ESA in the state senate. It failed to pass the Education Committee.
