HB 1371 - School Choice Act

House Sponsor: Representative Ford

HB 1371 would allow public schools to pay taxpayer funds to private religious schools, by means of tuition vouchers to certain parents. This bill establishes a pilot School Choice Program which would create a voucher program for 1000 students living in one of the 20 zip codes that generate the greatest amount of State lottery sales in 2010. Eligible students would receive a scholarship to leave a public school and enroll in an non-public school.
