The reality is that Florida has long been a leader in funding students – not school buildings – and serves as a model for the nation.

The Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program, created in 2001, is the largest of its kind in the country—awarding more than 95,000 low-income students a $5,886 scholarship to attend the private school of their choice. This program has seen steady growth every year as more and more parents choose to enroll their children in a participating private school.
