AUSTIN – The Texas Public Policy Foundation applauds the passage of House Bill 1926, a digital education bill that improves the accessibility of online learning.
“HB 1926 takes a strong step toward expanding flexibility for online learning providers in Texas,” said James Golsan, Policy Analyst at Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Center for Education Policy. “Though Texas stacks up well relative to other states in various aspects of digital learning, one area in which we have under-performed is in flexibility for digital content providers. By allowing non-profit and private providers to more easily deliver online learning in Texas, and by taking steps to ensure greater transparency for parents on courses available in the Texas Virtual School Network, this bill improves digital learning opportunities and enhances the quality of online learning in the state.”
