School choice marches on

"As the political season winds to a close," Greg Forster writes, "let's survey the results:"
-- A new personal tax credit for private school tuition in Louisiana

-- A new tax-credit scholarship program in Georgia

-- A new voucher program in Louisiana

-- An expansion of Florida's tax-credit scholarship program ...

-- A million-dollar funding increase and guaranteed future funding stream for Utah's voucher program

-- Preservation (tentatively) of the DC voucher program in a hostile Congress

That's three new programs, two expansions of existing programs and an upset victory in DC. Pretty good for a dead movement, wouldn't you say?
