Thousands of parents across South Carolina are eager for lawmakers to pass school choice legislation. Some parents desperately want the means to get their child out of a failing public school, others are struggling to pay private school tuition. Tuition tax credits allow families to get back some of their own tax dollars to help them pay for tuition at a non-public school. Likewise, Student Scholarship Organizations exist to give out privately contributed scholarships to low-income students who need a way out of failing public schools.
Parents must be empowered to choose a learning environment that fits their child. School choice has done this for thousands of families in other states, and will do the same in South Carolina.
