Gov. Mike Pence's recently announced 2015 legislative agenda includes a plan to increase school choice. He is asking legislators to add a new grant for funding charter schools, as well as a plan to increase the value of school vouchers by removing the cap on Choice Scholarships and expanding the related tax credit.
This is just what the educational system needs. By strengthening charter schools and enlarging Indiana's voucher system, these measures will promote economic efficiency in education, expand the choices available for students and create more equality of opportunity for children from low-income families.
