SOUTH CAROLINA SENATE MAJORITY LEADER SHANE MASSEY RELEASES STATEMENT ON THE PASSAGE OF SCHOOL CHOICE BILL
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Today, the South Carolina Senate adopted S. 39, a bill to establish Education Scholarship Trust Funds. Qualifying students will be able to use the scholarship funds to cover costs associated with attending the school of their choice.
Senate Majority Leader Shane Massey issued the following statement:
“School choice will transform education in South Carolina. With today’s vote, Senate Republicans stood up for South Carolina’s working families. This landmark legislation will give low-income parents the option to send their children to the school that is best suited for them. School choice means the quality of a child’s education will no longer be determined by his or her zip code.”
