School Choice Bill That Benefits Special Needs Children Passes Senate and Key House Committees In an exciting development, the Education Savings Account bill that would benefit thousands of children with special needs passed both the House Finance Committee and the full Senate today. “This is a great development for all Tennesseans. It gives children with special needs across the state the tailored academic experience they deserve; one that meets their unique needs,” said Beacon CEO Justin Owen. “Every child deserves a quality education, and today’s votes in favor of Education Savings Accounts for children shows that our legislature realizes that.” The bill will be voted on by the full House on Wednesday.
