Colorado State Lawmakers Give School Choice a Monday Double-Whammy
Another day at the state legislature, more setbacks for school choice. I’m back from school, have my homework done, so I wanted to share this quick update.
Dead on arrival? Yes, that would be a proposal by state senator Kevin Lundberg, R-Berthoud, to create a modest pilot property tax credit for families who take their child out of public school and enroll him in a private school or homeschool program. The Democrat-controlled State Affairs Committee terminated Senate Bill 221 (PDF) on a party-line vote.
In other news, the state house shot down an attempt to restore cuts in public charter school facilities funding.
A double-whammy against school choice opportunities, and it’s only Monday….
