NH Bill providing state money for private schools advances

CONCORD — A Senate-passed bill that would give parents state funding to send their children to private schools got a positive recommendation from a House subcommittee, in preparation for a full vote by the House Education Committee on Nov. 8.

The Education Freedom Savings Accounts authorized under SB 193 would enable parents who work with an approved scholarship organization to receive 95 percent of the per-pupil state grant to be used for tuition or other costs at a school of the family’s choice, or to pay for home-schooling. (See related editorial, Page A6) A nine-member subcommittee appointed to study the legislation met for the third time Tuesday and voted 6-3 to recommend the bill ought to pass. *| Keep Reading at Union Leader.com
