This bill would create the Mississippi Education Savings Scholarship Accounts Program. Parents whose children were formerly enrolled in public school would receive state money to teach them basic education subjects. Expenses of the instruction would be paid from money held by the Department of Education from funds previously provided to the student’s school district. Additionally, property taxes received by the school district would be transferred to the Department to fund the scholarship. The scholarship funds could also be used for college. This appears to be another form of voucher program that would increase state control over education.
Died in committee. See "Bill History" link below.
