The ABC’s of School Choice

The Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice, a renowned advocate for school choice programs, recently published their 2009-10 edition of “The ABC’s of School Choice” in which they highlight scholarship and tax credit programs from across the nation offering more educational freedom to students and their parents.

Among the highlighted programs is Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, in which corporations are eligible to receive credit on the state’s corporate income tax by contributing to scholarship-awarding and public school initiative organizations. The EITC program served over 38,000 students in 2009, with the average scholarship totaling $1,022 per year for Kindergarten through 12th grade.
