This is a school choice issue.  Not all states or local school districts offer parents the ability to choose where your student will attend school.  There are only two programs that offer school choice funding—Tax Credits and Vouchers.

  • Tax credits reward parents and business owners for contributing their own money to educate students
  • Vouchers are given to families by states and localities to give parents the ability to choose where their students will attend school.

For more information on school choice see the Center for Education Reform

There are 21 school voucher programs in 18 states plus the District of Columbia and Douglas County, Colorado. During the 2013-2014 school year, 115,580 students participated in private school voucher programs and $1.2 billion was spent on school voucher programs nationwide.

The Center for Education Reform provides information on each state that provides a voucher program.
