School Choice Issues in Indiana: Sifting through the Rhetoric. Education Policy Brief. Volume 9, Number 3
Billick, Rebecca L.; Hiller, Stephen C.; Spradlin, Terry E.
Center for Evaluation and Education Policy, Indiana University
This year Indiana joined over a dozen other states in adopting Friedman's principles by passing what many believe to be the most comprehensive school choice program in the country. With the enactment of three key bills (HEA 1001, HEA 1003, and HEA 1004), Indiana parents may now take advantage of a school expenditure tax deduction, school scholarships granted from private Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs) which are incentivized with a tax credit, and Choice Scholarships (generally referred to as vouchers) granted to low-income parents and funded by the state of Indiana. This Education Policy Brief will examine the legal, fiscal, and policy ramifications of Indiana's school choice offerings, particularly the new Choice Scholarship program. (Contains 3 tables and 42 footnotes.)
