STATUS: Passed House; awaiting Senate action.
we need a Choose Your School, Choose Your Future act.
This bill enables parents to choose the very best school for their children. Parents know best, and public schools in our state are failing our children, evidenced by abysmal test scores, violence, rampant indoctrination and pornography in school libraries. If the public school system was doing its job, so many parents would not be anxious to flee the system. This legislation will allow students to reach their full potential instead of being stuck in a school that doesn’t work for them.
The Choose Your School, Choose Your Future Act (H823, S406) is a continued expansion of funding and eligibility for opportunity scholarships that allows ALL parents to choose which school is best for their child. It gives every school-aged child a scholarship to attend private school, with the award amount being determined by income level.
