Florida’s school choice expansion awaits governor’s signature

More Florida families may get to send their kids to private school thanks to a new piece of legislation.

Florida’s Legislature recently passed an expansion to the state’s tax-credit scholarship program, allowing partial scholarships to private schools for families that earn a little too much money to be eligible for a full scholarship. The bill also included some tighter restrictions on scholarship nonprofits.

This school choice expansion awaits Gov. Rick Scott’s signature before becoming law.
