Proposal would Include Voucher Schools in State Report Card
Some critics of school choice argue the schools in the program are not measured for quality.
Under a proposal two state lawmakers unveiled on Wednesday, voucher schools would join public schools on the state report card.
In addition, there would be a provision for voucher schools to be kicked out of the school choice program, if students don’t perform well.
The chairs of the education committees in the Senate and Assembly, Sen. Luther Olsen and Rep. Steve Kestell, worked on the proposal, along with stakeholders.
