Opportunity of New School Choice Program Keeps Georgia on My Mind

Exciting news! Kids all over the state of Georgia have new education opportunities, thanks to a law signed today that creates new tax credits for donations to private school scholarship programs. I bet the guy who wrote this article may have some second thoughts.

· Both individual and corporate taxpayers may donate

· Program capped at $50 million

What a great deal! If Colorado only had something like this for kids like me and my friends….
