The state Senate has unanimously passed a school choice bill intended to standardize the process.

The goal of the bill is to make it easier for families using the choice option by creating one system for applications. Right now each school district has its own criteria and application.

State Representative Kim Williams of Stanton says this bill makes sense.

"One out of every four kids choice into a school, so this process will make it much easier and much fairer for all students," says Williams.

The bill which also passed the House unanimously also eliminates discrimination against special needs students. It now goes to Governor Markell.
