RALEIGH – New education tax credits would help more North Carolina parents choose the best schools for their children, while potentially saving the state millions of dollars each year. That’s a key conclusion of a new N.C. Education Alliance Policy Report by Krista Kafer.

As one of the oldest forms of school choice in the United States, education tax credits empower low- and middle-income parents to choose schools that best meet their children’s needs. Cost-effective, constitutional, and consistent with federal and state tax policy, tax credits enjoy bipartisan support among education reformers and parents; in fact, the number of states with education tax credits has tripled over the past 10 years. Tax credits create a vibrant education marketplace by making private schooling affordable for low- and middle-income families seeking a fresh start for their children.
