JUNEAU, Alaska—In response to a lawsuit filed in Superior Court in Anchorage last week, yes. every kid. foundation. (Yes Foundation) Vice President Michael Donnelly issued the following statement:
“Americans are ready to transform education so that every kid can be treated as a unique learner, but this lawsuit tries to lock children in a one-size-fits-all system. Alaska’s correspondence program provides meaningful educational opportunity for thousands of students and is worth defending. When families and kids have educational freedom, our whole country benefits. Our legal resource center is ready to work alongside Alaskan families who want more freedom when it comes to their child’s education.”
Launched in January 2023, the Yes Foundation legal resource center provides policy analysis and other resources to help education entrepreneurs who are trailblazing new territory navigate through the legal barriers that prevent them from creating greater educational opportunities. Additionally, Yes Foundation helps coordinate national efforts that support legislative, judicial and executive actions that expand family-focused kid-centered education freedom.
