The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program allows more than 40,000 students each year to choose the school that best fits their needs.
On May 4, a rally was held on the steps of the State Capitol in support of EITC and the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC). Hundreds of parents, children, teachers and legislators celebrated this landmark program and urged the General Assembly to expand the programs.
During the rally, the Paul M. Henkels Award was given to Dr. Ron Bowes of the Diocese of Pittsburgh. The award celebrates the leadership of individuals and organizations that advance innovative solutions and demonstrate meaningful progress in expanding educational options in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
School choice is an important social justice issue. Education should not be left to chance, it should be a matter of choice. You can view more photos from the EITC rally here:
