    Wow, I hope this action is repeated around the country.

    snippet:

    Today, the New Hampshire House and Senate took a stand for choice and freedom in education. Both bodies mustered an overwhelming 69-percent super-majority in favor of the School Choice Scholarship Act, over-riding the Governor’s veto.

    This is by far the largest margin of victory ever secured for a new private school choice program. The law is path-breaking, supporting for the first time in the nation a family’s choice to home school their child.

    The law protects independence and innovation in private education, imposing no new restrictions on private or home schools, because the lawmakers understand that direct accountability to parents and taxpayers is the most effective kind of accountability.
    The program allows up to 30 percent of the credit funds in the first year (more in subsequent years) to support children who are already in private school, but need assistance in order to remain there.

    And if after the first two years, the program can expand by 25 percent each year.

    A recent Supreme Court ruling kept the door open for this. A few years ago, Arizona offered state tax breaks for donations to private schools. Liberals sued and said it violation separation of Church and State and State because the government didn't ban private donations to Christians schools. Of course, all the God Damned Jews on the Supreme Court agreed that failure to ban private donations to Christians schools is unconstitutional(sic). But, fortunately, the Jews are a minority. And, with God's blessing, the Jews will be a smaller minority in the future.
