$1500 education tax credit for all parents

Clatworthy’s education reform policy will provide parents with a $1500 education tax credit per child, to be used for computers, books, software, tutoring and any other educational expenses, including tuition. The education tax credit will be available to all parents of children in public, private or home schools. In addition to benefiting the middle class, the tax credit will help the needy, providing a cash refund for low-income parents who do not owe income taxes.

Subsidize school choice

“The Court’s affirmation of school choice and opportunity is a victory for parents and children nationwide ? especially for those trapped in failed schools,” said Clatworthy. “No parent should be forced to send their child to a school that is broken. I support greater school choice because every child, no matter what their socio-economic status, deserves a chance to succeed. It’s an act of compassion”
