Over 5,000 parents and children rallied on the Florida capital last week in support of a bill to expand that state's k-12 scholarship donation tax credit program. Under the program, businesses that pay private school tuition for low-income children get a dollar for dollar tax cut. It saves the state $1.49 for every $1 it reduces revenue, according to the accountability agency of the Florida legislature.

There's video, too:

The bill in question has already passed the Senate and seems likely to pass the House. 2010 is shaping up to be a very good year for educational freedom.
