Gov. Larry Hogan announced plans Tuesday to double the funding for a program that helps students pay for private school tuition.
The state-funded scholarship program would gradually increase over three years from $5 million currently to $10 million under Hogan’s plan.
The governor visited Bais Yaakov School for Girls in Baltimore County to make the announcement, which was greeted with a standing ovation from students and teachers from Bais Yaakov and other Jewish day schools.
“I knew I came to the right audience,” Hogan said.
