Trump Administration Considering Spending Billions to Send Working Class Kids to Private School

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

President Donald Trump’s administration is thinking about conducting a national tax credit scholarship initiative that would provide working-class families with billions of dollars so their children could attend private schools.

Religious schools would also fall under the new policy, as reported by Politico.

Trump stated that he wants “every single disadvantaged child in America, no matter what their background or where they live, to have a choice about where they go to school,” while speaking at the White House with teachers and parents.

The pro-public school faction has called Trump’s tax credit idea a veiled voucher program that would deprive already struggling public schools of critical tax money. Meanwhile, conservatives are concerned that Trump’s plan would result in more federal intervention and force a kind of standardization for schools previously influenced by nonprofit groups (i.e. religious denominations).

The prospective tax credit initiative could be included on a more substantial tax reform bill that has been delayed by the pending Obamacare repeal.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
