Governor Brian Sandoval issued the following statement after District Judge Eric Johnson upheld the constitutionality of Nevada’s sweeping school choice law creating the Education Savings Accounts program.

“Today's decision by Judge Johnson is a victory for thousands of Nevada families who are pursuing the opportunity to choose the best education path for their children. School choice was an important part of the legislative education reform package enacted in 2015,” said Governor Brian Sandoval. “I hope that all pending litigation challenging these critical reforms will soon be resolved for the sake of our students who deserve every opportunity to succeed.”
