Barresi touts scholarship tax credits

"I'm urging passage of legislation enacting tuition tax credits in Oklahoma to offer parents more and better choices," state Superintendent Janet Barresi writes in the Edmond Sun ('Bold reforms will transform state's education system'). "Under the legislation, businesses and individuals could qualify for tax credits for contributions to eligible scholarship-granting organizations. Those organizations, in turn, would offer scholarships to qualifying families in need."

The legislation, Senate Bill 969, is currently making its way through the state legislature.
