Members of the House Education Committee will resume discussion today on the Opportunity Scholarship Act , also known as the school voucher bill.
House Bill 944 would offer $4,200 maximum scholarships to students wishing to attend private schools instead of their local public schools. The program would set aside $10 million in the first year, $40 million in the second year and $50 million every year after.
NCAE President Rodney Ellis weighed in on the voucher bill on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon over the weekend. Click below to hear why his group opposes the current legislation. (For the full  interview, visit the Radio Interview section of the Policy Watch website.)
The House Education Committee meets at 10:00am this morning in Room 643 of the Legislative Office Building.
