The state Senate resoundingly passed a couple of bills to preserve school choice authored by Sen. Bob Huff, R-Brea. Now the Assembly should do the same.

One of Huff’s bills, SB 1432, would extend the 22-year-old California School District of Choice program, which has proven successful but is scheduled to sunset next year.

The other, SB 1156, would preserve the 6-year-old Open Enrollment Act by updating the main criterion for using it.

The District of Choice program allows parents to transfer their children to participating school districts without a transfer agreement.
