A vast majority of education groups opposed the measure, arguing not only does it divert money from schools, but provides parents with an incentive to pull their kids out of public education.

“If you pull your child out of those systems there's no guarantee the child receives a quality education,” said Owens.

Parents would receive the funds on debit cards and would have to justify expenditures with the state. If parents don't spend all the money they receive from the state they could keep it to pay for college later on.


What a sale's pitch-Pay less for private classroom education and keep the rest of the money. The Ignorance banner just got a lot bigger.
