The Warsaw School Board has formally voiced their opposition to a new school choice bill currently in the Indiana House.

House Bill 1005 would expand school choice options for Hoosier families by creating a new funding program for students not enrolled in public school to get tuition support from to pay for education costs.

The Warsaw Board says if it’s passed, public schools like Warsaw would receive less than a third of the money promised to schools by Governor Holcomb in 2022 and possibly no additional money in 2023.

The board’s statement says the Bill would divert money from publicly monitored and regulated school corporations to ones that are not as closely monitored.
