The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the education landscape, offering new solutions that could bring much needed innovation to a well established and complex structure. More and more parents are choosing to send their children to alternative settings for education and are pressing local officials for support, particularly with transportation. 
  
While school choice has been around for quite some time it was the pandemic that drove the process forward faster than any of us could have imagined. Education Week has reported "that in the early weeks of 2021, lawmakers in nearly a third of the states have responded with bills intended to establish or expand on things like tax-credit scholarships and education savings accounts." 

The bills intend to open up the option of school choice for more families expanding across a number of states. Even in states where choice does not include financial support for transportation, it is important to understand the growing impact of choice in transportation. 

NAPT® has partnered with EdChoice to offer the transportation industry a better understanding of how school choice will impact our industry
