School Choice Bill Passes Full Finance Committee

January 26, 2016 6:45PM

Today, the Tennessee Choice & Opportunity Scholarship Act passed the full House Finance Committee, a big step for the eventual adoption of school choice options for Tennessee families. Having already passed the full Senate last session, the bill will now move on for a vote of the full House of Representatives.

Beacon CEO Justin Owen stated, “It is becoming increasingly more likely that this school choice bill will become law, and that struggling children all across Tennessee will finally get the education they deserve. This is the furthest the school choice proposal has ever  advanced in the legislature, and I feel confident that our legislators see the importance of a quality education and will pass this bill into law.”
