Tax Credit Scholarships Shown to Improve Student Performance

A new study of the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship—which provides tax credits for businesses donating to organizations offering scholarships to K-12 students, similar to Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax—finds academic gains for students receiving scholarships. Matthew Ladner summarizes the findings.

This adds to a mountain of evidence that school choice programs improved educational outcomes for participating students and spur academic gains in public education as schools compete and adopt best practices of successful schools.
