Major School Choice Victory in Ohio!!!

The education freedom victories keep mounting across the USA.

Ohio already offers private school tuition scholarships of $5,500 for grades K–8 and $7,500 for grades 9-12 — but only for families under 250 percent of the federal poverty level ($75,000 for a family of four).

Ohio’s new budget law, agreed to late last week, includes a substantial expansion – making the full scholarship available to any family under 450 percent of the federal poverty level ($135,000 for a family of four), with a sliding scale based on income above that level down to a minimum of 10 percent of the full amount.

ALEC, our partner in our CTUP initiative to bring school choice to a dozen states this year, played a major role in pushing this great reform through the legislature.

Next door in Pennsylvania, the budget fight went into overtime because they are attempting to create a school choice program — supported by the Democratic governor – to provide lifeline scholarships to kids in the 15 percent worst-performing schools in the state.
