In Utah: Money follows the student online

Way to go UTAH!!  The easiest way to grow online learning in a state is to allow the funding to follow the student on a per class basis.  This is why Florida has so many students studying online and Utah just passed SB65 which wil allow funding to follwo the students.


One limit is that the school has to Utah based or from a district which is a little limiting.  However it allows students to study when they want and how they want.  It passed 27 - 0 and will pay $700 per class. 

More to come - but this was a huge push for Parents for Choice in Education and good friend, Robyn Bagley.  Congrats to all who work so hard for students.
