Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand that’s seven.
- A new voucher program – bigger than any existing school choice program
- A new tax deduction for education expenses (including private schooling)
- An expansion of Indiana’s existing tax-credit scholarship program
Add that to the list of previous enactments this year…
- Utah’s Carson Smith voucher expansion
- Douglas County, Co. new voucher program
- Arizona new ESA program
- DC voucher expansion
…and that smells like a really fancy dinner at one of Milwaukee’s finest restaurants.
In the comments here, “allen” suggests that whether or not there’s an “end zone” in the war or terror, we should definitely seek to “run up the score.” I heartily agree – and I’m not above running up the score on Mathews, either.
A little bird tells me these states are still in play for enactments this year:
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
I’ll take Texas with a grain of salt – sorry, Matt, but we’ve been promised a program in Texas too many times over too many years for me not to be skeptical. But hey, as you put it, 2011 is already setting a new standard for education reform. Why not Texas, too?
Fact: Chuck Norris can enact a Texas voucher in every state.
