Senate Bill 11 is the Ultimate in Legislative Mischief to Privatize the Public Common School
The SB11 moniker Parent Education Freedom Act is a joke, but it is not amusing; it is a devastating threat to the very existence of the public common school system.
Section 3310.032(A)(2) in the Bill reads: “Beginning with scholarships awarded in 2023-2024 school year and each school year thereafter, a student is an ‘eligible student’ for purposes of an educational choice scholarship under this section if the student is entering any of grades kindergarten through twelve.” Hence, universal voucher eligibility is the purpose of the Bill. The mask is off. The original eligibility-sob-story plea was “a voucher for poor children in a low performing school district.” Sadly, many in the public education community were deceived by that insidious poppycock. That’s not all. SB11 also increases the income tax credit for homeschooling expenses from $250 to $2000 or the amount of education expense incurred by the taxpayer, whichever is less.
