South Carolina May Be Next Special Education Voucher State

South Carolina is poised to become the 13th state to allow vouchers for students in special education.

The state passed a $6.7 billion budget this week that includes a provision to set aside $8 million in tax credits for people and businesses who donate to entities that dole out scholarships to private schools for students with disabilities. Each student would be eligible for up to $10,000. Gov. Nikki Haley, a Republican who signaled her support for school choice initiatives in a speech to lawmakers at the start of the legislative session, has until Tuesday to issue line-item vetoes.

My colleague Katie Ash has more on this story at the blog Charters and Choice.
