Education Tax Credits: A Review of the Rhode Island Program and Assessment of Possibilities in Massachusetts
A Review of the Rhode Island Program and Assessment of Possibilities in Massachusetts Author(s): Matthew P. Steinberg — Publication date: 2010-10-19 Category: Education Abstract: In 2007, Pioneer Institute offered groundbreaking, first-in-the-nation research on the expansion of educational opportunities for low-income students via tax benefits. That report outlined and assessed education tax credit programs in Florida, Minnesota, and Arizona. Building on that research, this policy brief reviews the new tax credit program in Rhode Island which facilitates the transfer of students from public to private schools with the assistance of corporate-funded tuition scholarships.
