Over the past week, I have enjoyed engaging in a spirited debate over STC programs with Professor Kevin Welner of the University of Colorado at Boulder.
The debate over scholarship tax credit (STC) programs continues.

Earlier this week, Stephanie Saul of the New York Times launched a full frontal assault on scholarship tax credit (STC) programs, accusing them of failing to help low-income students, draining public schools of needed funding, and of using public money for private purposes. However, these accusations are based on isolated anecdotes and flawed logic that do not reflect reality.
