Some Georgians Aim to Expand Tuition Program

Supporters say passage of the charter schools amendment Nov. 6 made it clear that voters want more educational choices for children, including more public money for private-school scholarships.
 

Georgia law allows individuals and corporations in Georgia to divert part of their state taxes to "student scholarship organizations," which then distribute most of the money as scholarships to private schools they represent.

Reports say school choice advocates hope to increase the program to $100 million.

Critics say the scholarship program is largely unregulated and drains badly needed money from the state treasury.
