The Missouri Senate could debate this week a wide-ranging education package.
The plan could expand charter schools to any Missouri city with a population greater than 30,000 people. It would let parents use tax credits on things like private school tuition, school supplies, and tutoring. That portion could cost up to $100 million in its first year.
The legislation also aims to give state aid for full-time equivalent online learning enrollment to the MOCAP virtual school provider – not the local district the student lives in.
