The Advocate reports the Louisiana Legislature is potentially one step away from having a final budget plan. The current special session must end on or before Monday.
A great week for school choice across the USA –
- On Wednesday, the Wisconsin Senate voted in a bipartisan fashion to provide significant quality control measures that reduce the administrative burden and enhance accountability on the voucher program.
- In Nevada, the tax credit scholarship program expansion was officially signed into law by Gov. Brian Sandoval yesterday. Nearly 4,000 more children from working-class and economically disadvantaged households will soon have further access to educational opportunities across the state.
- And in Florida, Gov. Rick Scott signed an education bill which expanded charter school funding as well as the Gardiner Scholarship Program, and established a Schools of Hope effort to lure more high performing charters to the state.
