Taxpayers' Savings Grants Are Good for Texas

August 21, 2012

Originally proposed in Texas in 2011, Taxpayer Savings Grants would reimburse parents for tuition paid for enrollment of children at private schools of their choice in the amount of actual tuition or 60 percent of the state’s average per-pupil maintenance and operations expenditure, whichever is less. Students entering kindergarten or enrolled in a public school for at least one year would be eligible. The Heartland Institute estimates between 6% and 8% of public school students would be moved to private schools, saving the state approximately $1 billion a year.
