This page includes active legislation and upcoming bills that we as educators and laborers need to take action before they come up for a vote.
SB 193 is a DANGEROUS bill that would deplete funding for public schools. As an example, if a parent decided to take their child out of public education, this bill says that the money utilized by the public school system for that child would go with him/her. The parents/guardians would get that money and would not have to be accountable for it, or for their child’s education. They could use it for a private school, a charter school or for homeschooling. However, when the child returns to pubic education, the money does not return with them. We will essentially have to pay twice for many students.
