Re: “No slam dunk for private school tax credits

Why can't this work. If the public schools truly spend more than $8K per child each year and would save the money, then this is a good deal for the state. The problem is that they NEED our tax money to provide what amounts to in some cases a mediocre education. We opted for private school because our base school has too many problems. We don't need any more crusades in our lives and we don't need to be in the last of 7 lottery rounds for magnet programs in Wake County. So we opted for the sure thing and less headaches with a private religious affiliated school. I think a lot of the parents who send their kids to private school make more than $100K in taxable income. So the hit to the state tax revenue might not be as huge as everyone is making it out to be. If you live in an area like Raleigh, it is surprising how many families make more than $100K a year or single files who make more than $60K. Then again, they may be able to reduce their taxable income through other deductions and get the credit for private/home school. I'd like to see the income limit a little higher for families. This frees up money that people will spend in the community!
