Re: A Big School-Choice Victory

Dan Lips of the Heritage Foundation writes in:

Georgia’s victory is the third big win for school choice this year. Louisiana enacted a tuition tax deduction during Jindal’s first special session. Last week, Florida increased the cap on its corporate tax credit program to $120 million. Importantly, that win came with strong support from Democrats. Democrats are also sponsoring school choice measures in Maryland and New Jersey. I wouldn’t be surprised if a couple more states pass bills this year. All in all, 2008 is turning out to be a good year for school choice.
