RICHMOND, Va. (WFXR) – A Virginia lawmaker is looking to give parents more flexibility – if local schools don’t offer in-person education.
Delegate Michael Webert represents Virginia’s 18th district in northeastern Virginia.
Webert introduced a bill that would require local school boards to give parents who withdraw their child, a voucher to cover in-person instruction in an alternative setting.
That voucher would be equal to the amount of money each school gets from state taxes, for each student.
State lawmakers will take up that bill during the 2021 Legislative Session.
