Tax Credits For Private Scholarships?

In the wake of the Idaho's bitter debate over state school Superintendent Tom Luna's now-repealed school reform plan, the 2013 Legislature could discuss another education policy change that wasn't in Luna's package but could prove just as divisive: Tax credits to fund scholarships to private and religious schools, the AP reports. AP reporter John Miller writes that the proposal is similar to one introduced near the close of last year's session by Rep. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d'Alene, (seen in new Idaho Senate photo) and is being pushed by Wayne Hoffman's Idaho Freedom Foundation/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Do you support/oppose this proposal?
