No matter the vote, empowerment scholarships have helped many

In November, Arizona voters will decide whether expanding the state’s Empowerment Scholarship Account program makes sense.

It evolved, with little controversy, to include adopted children, children attending D/F rated schools, and those in Native American communities.
