The Georgia Education Academic Innovation Subcommittee passed House Bill 999
Today, the Georgia Education Academic Innovation Subcommittee passed House Bill 999, legislation that would create Promise Scholarships allowing all children to find the right fit for their education. Scholarships could be used on any approved education expense, such as private school tuition, tutoring, homeschool curriculum, virtual classes, college classes, therapies (for kids with special needs), technology, etc. H.B. 999 now goes to the full House Education Committee for consideration.
The Georgia Center for Opportunity’s (GCO) take: “We have been fighting alongside parents and families to create more opportunities for students to access high-quality education options. Promise Scholarships are a huge leap in the right direction to put kids first,” said Buzz Brockway, GCO’s vice president of public policy. “This was a true bipartisan effort and we’re glad to see lawmakers working together for the common good of children and their education.”
