School choice backers fail to put measure on California ballot

The school election will not be on the ballot in November.

The man who led an initiative campaign to provide $ 14,000 per student for parents and guardians to choose the private or religious school of their choice acknowledged that the impetus was substantially below the signatures needed to present the measure to voters.

In an email to fans last week, Michael Alexander, president of California School Choice Initiative, he said the campaign would collect about 200,000 signatures within 180 days to submit them on April 11th. That’s 20% of the 997,000 verified signatures needed and less than a seventh of the campaign’s goal of 1.5 million signatures to ensure the initiative qualifies.

“Although it is far from the required number, we can boast of an incredible effort,” he wrote, promising to try again in 2024.
