CT Examiner: Six Bills To Watch in Connecticut, Say Advocates

Yankee Institute’s President, Carol Platt Liebau, was cited in CT Examiner’s article on the six bills to watch on March 25, 2021.

Anna Elizabeth writes:

House Bill 6175, An Act Concerning Educational Access and Opportunity Scholarships, is a bill that would create tax credits for those who donate to organizations that offer funds to disadvantage children to access education choices. Children where school just isn’t working for them, whether they’ve fallen behind in the pandemic or are far ahead and aren’t challenged by their school, could apply to one of these scholarship granting organizations like the Children’s Educational Opportunity Foundation, and then they could obtain a scholarship that would help them afford a different school. The goal is to help disadvantaged children have access to the same educational opportunities enjoyed by their wealthier counterparts. I’m grateful that legislators from across the political spectrum have noticed how much these kids need a boost and have chosen to support the bill – Carol Platt Liebau, President, Yankee Institute
