Yes, that means parents that home-school their children can get performance vouchers.
Performance vouchers would not apply to students that are developmentally disabled.
Public school systems will not be required to take problematic students. The responsibility for education rests with the parent, not with the public school system. This change in dynamic makes it easier for public school systems to expel problematic students that harm other students' education.
We do not advocate for inclusivity for learning disabled students. We strongly support for special learning disabled programs and schools.
