Education Tax Credits: The way forward for choice in New Mexico

The Cato Institute has published an outstanding new paper (link is to executive summary) on the potential for education tax credits to provide greater choice in public education. Among other points, the paper argues that tax credits enjoy practical, legal, and political advantages over school vouchers. Tax credits, not vouchers, are a viable option here in New Mexico for many of the reasons outlined above and for that reason they are a top priority of the Rio Grande Foundation and other advocates of increased educational opportunity.
