Tax credits for scholarships going to low-income NH families
Concord, NH – Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) and Senator Sharon Carson (R-Londonderry) today applauded the New Hampshire Supreme Court decision to dismiss a lawsuit against New Hampshire’s School Choice Scholarship Program.
“School choice scholarships give low-income families more flexibility to find the best educational options for their children. Public schools in New Hampshire do a great job of meeting the educational needs of most students. But as a parent I know that some children need more choices for their education, which is why I have long supported charter schools, homeschooling, choice in which public school to attend as well as tax credit scholarships for low income students,” Bradley said “I’m pleased that New Hampshire’s School Choice Scholarship Program will be allowed to continue.”
“This is a great day for school choice, and for all parents looking to provide their children with the best education possible,” Carson said. “School choice is a proven tool to increase educational quality.”
Bradley and Carson were co-sponsors of SB 372, a 2012 bill which established education tax credits to fund school choice scholarships for low-income families.
