Act Now To Make School Choice A Reality

In Uncategorized on June 4, 2008 at 2:25 pm

You can join tens of thousands of concerned taxpayers in supporting historic school choice legislation in New Jersey. This proposed law — S-1607, The Urban Enterprise Zone Jobs Scholarship Act — will help low-income students to access effective private schools, while reducing the skyrocketing cost of public education.

We need you now to help pass S-1607. This landmark education reform would allow New Jersey corporations to receive a 100% tax credit for contributions to local scholarship funds. The math makes great sense for taxpayers. The S-1607 scholarship would cost taxpayers about $6,000 in tax credits for private education. But it would save taxpayers about $18,000 for every student it keeps out of urban public schools.

To make this happen, please contact Senator Buono, Chair of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, and Senate President Richard Codey to urge them to post S-1607 for a hearing.

Take Action Now!

Many Thanks.

  1. The sooner the urban public schools have competition in the way of scholarships/vouchers, the better for all New Jersey citizens.

    School choice. Its time has come.
