Action Alert From the Iowa Association of Christian Schools:
March 21, 2013 – House Study Bill 225 would increase the amount of tax credits for school tuition organizations to $12 million (currently at $8.75 million). The credits are made available for those who donate to scholarship funds for nonpublic school students through School Tuition Organizations (STOs).
Last fall more than 10,400 low-income students received a grant through the program to attend the school of their choice. More than $11.3 million in scholarships were awarded.
We support the bill because it helps parents get assistance in choosing the school that best fits their child’s learning needs.
Please send a message to your member of the Iowa House asking him or her to support HSB 225 by clicking here. We are partnering with the Iowa Catholic Conference to send out emails and encourage you to do so today!
Very happy to see school choice get such bipartisan support in Iowa. Click the link above and help keep it that way! I highly encourage you to sign up for their email list at www.iowachristianschools.org. They don’t spam, only send out action alerts when big things are happening at the Capitol, and they are a great resource for information on education, education reform, and private school choice. They are there every day during the legislative session and have a great Board of Directors.
