Education issues have come to the forefront during the current state legislative session. Missouri School Boards Association Spokesman Brent Ghan says it has been a priority on both sides of the Missouri Capitol.
One measure that has generated a great deal of attention is Senate Bill 55.
The House has also approved an education bill.
HB 349 establishes the Missouri Empowerment Scholarship Accounts Program, or what has also been called the tax credit scholarship or voucher bill.
