Education Tax Credits: Most Popular Choice Policy

The Friedman Foundation has just published the latest state poll – Maryland – in their very helpful education survey series.

There are a lot of interesting things here, but I’ll highlight just a couple:

Maryland spends more than $12,000 per student. Only eight percent of Maryland residents guessed that spending was more than $10,000. Taxpayers have absolutely no concept of how badly they are getting fleeced by the teachers unions.

Education tax credits once again outperform vouchers in popularity. Credits pull in 52 percent support, with 48 percent opposed. Vouchers get just 42 percent support, with 58 percent opposed.

Following the recent EdNext and a mountain of other evidence, it’s clear that education tax credits are the best bet for school choice supporters.
