The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) announces its support for the Education Freedom Scholarships and Opportunity Act, a signature legislative proposal to advance parental choice in education through a federal tax credit program.

The legislation is a reasonable approach which is carefully drawn to respect the requirements of federalism and the autonomy of independent education providers such as Christian schools.

The legislation creates a new federal tax credit for state programs that provide scholarships which empower families to choose the education model that best suits their needs. By respecting the autonomy of educators, the legislation is designed to ensure a broad diversity of education options from which families have a multitude of choices. ACSI commends President Trump for this reasonable step toward meeting his commitment to parental choice in education.
