Lawmakers revived and advanced a bill Wednesday that aims to expand online learning opportunities, partly by directing education dollars toward public and private providers. The Senate voted 17-12 on Wednesday to advance SB65 to the House after the bill failed on the Senate floor Tuesday. The bill aims to expand learning opportunities by allowing students to take online courses offered by public and private providers to be certified by the state school board. The funding would follow the students, instead of a local district getting all the cash for that student.
