RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has vetoed a trio of education-related bills he said would undercut state support for all public schools.

McAuliffe vetoed legislation Tuesday that would have allowed students at struggling schools to transfer to another school in the same school district.

Another bill would allow disabled students to use public school funding for private school or other items.

And a third bill would have created a new state board tasked with overseeing full-time virtual school programs.

None of the bills passed with veto-proof majorities, making it unlikely that the General Assembly will be able to override McAuliffe’s vetoes.
