The U.S. Senate passed an education bill that includes tax breaks for private and parochial school expenses. The measure, supported by Orthodox and Republican Jewish groups, would expand tax-free savings accounts that Congress created last year, allowing people to contribute up to $2,000 a year for school expenses beginning with kindergarten. Both the House and Senate lack the two- thirds majority needed to override a promised veto by President Clinton.
