Must have left a mark

Apparently, my editorial about scholarship tax credits left a mark.

Why else would multiple sites run rebuttals? I suppose they didn’t like the word “scam.” Unfortunately for them, people across the state are catching on to these “back-door vouchers.” Teachers, superintendents, policy wonks, and citizens of all kinds are seeing this “scholarship tax credits” program for what it is: a way to take money from public schools and give it to private ones.

You want to have a private school, and send your children there? Fine. But don’t take money from MY kid’s school to do it.

If Kentucky was overflowing with $$, then perhaps we could afford this giveaway. But when we can’t even pay for textbooks, now is no time to be adding new tax breaks.
