Dora Taylor: Four Things Betsy DeVos Does Not Want You to Know about Tax Credits

Dora Taylor writes in “The Progressive” about the disadvantages of tax credit, aka vouchers.

1. Education tax credits deplete state budgets, diverting money from public schools to private and religious schools.

2. Education tax credit programs benefit the rich.

3. Education tax credit programs are risky for students because the private and religious schools are not covered by federal civil rights laws.

4. Education tax credits underwrite religious indoctrination.

Is this what Americans want? No public referendum has ever supported vouchers.
