Senator Johnny Key presented his ideas to the Senate Education Committee Wednesday morning.
He has filed a bill to amend the Public School Choice Act of 1989, in which wording would remove the race provision and allow all students to choose what school they want to attend.
"I think no matter what the color of your skin, or your background or poverty level or anything else, the option of going to the school that best fits your educational needs is the best policy that we as lawmakers can make." Senator Key said.
Senator Joyce Elliott filed a bill that would not allow open, unmanaged school choice, and would make sure there is not a potential to create segregation; something she says the courts asked them to do.
Key didn't ask for a vote on Wednesday.
