The bill (SB233) gives parents in the lowest 25% of performing school districts a $6,500 voucher to send their kids to a private school or begin homeschooling if they feel that their children are struggling in their current school.

The bill passed the House of Representatives by a 91 to 82 vote last Thursday and will next move through Senate before it can be sent to Governor Brian Kemp’s office for approval.
