I still frequently see the canard that “poor families can’t benefit from school choice programs.”

Oh really? Tell that to the 100,000+ kids from low-income families in Florida receiving tax-credit scholarships through Step Up for Students. Average family income: $24,000.

Also, contra the false “minorities don’t benefit” narrative, about seven in 10 scholarship students are black or Hispanic.
