Republican Assemblymember Kevin Kiley Focuses on School Vouchers in California Recall Campaign

Republican Assemblymember Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin) is making school vouchers and Gov. Gavin Newsom’s handling of schools during the pandemic a centerpiece of his recall campaign, trying to tap into parent frustration over Covid-19 closures. At a news conference on Wednesday, Kiley pushed to get a measure on the 2022 ballot that would create a voucher-like system for families in California. The proposed initiative would create “education savings accounts” that allow K-12 students to access the state’s allocated per-pupil spending, about $12,000, to pay tuition at private schools or spend on other expenses at “any eligible school of their choice.”

Kiley is my pick to replace Newsom as I like his ideas a lot and there’s a chance that he could even appeal to moderates in CA regardless of party.
