Educational Choice

Liz Robbins has seven children, three of whom have a severe tissue disorder called EDS which requires constant medical attention. The frequent tests and invasive surgeries needed to manage EDS kept the two oldest affected children from regularly attending public school. Despite their need for this care, the public schools did not treat the resulting absences with compassion—even though her children had no trouble keeping up with their studies. Liz needs the ESA so she can design a quality education for her youngest EDS child, Dallin, who will likely miss a lot of school in the future.
