Vermont’s Town Tuitioning Program is the country’s oldest school choice program. It was created in 1869 to provide educational options to Vermonters in rural areas. The program allows students from towns without a public school to use the public funds to attend any public or private, secular school in Vermont or outside of the state.
Currently, about 4% of Vermont students live in a town with no public school and are eligible for the program.
However, we firmly believe that every Vermont student should have access to the same education benefits and the right to pursue an education that fits their learning needs.
Attorneys at the Liberty Justice Center, a national Supreme Court-winning law firm, are preparing legal action on behalf of families who would like to use the program.
