Senate Bill 1166: An Act Relating to Scholarships and Tax Credits
Senators Grooms, McConnell, Bryant, Campsen, Ryberg, Verdin, Mescher, Hawkins, Thomas, Fair, and Scott
This was a scholarship and tax credit bill. Homeschool students would not be eligible for scholarships but would be eligible for a tax credit not exceeding $500 each year for the costs of homeschooling. This scholarship portion of the bill was actually voucher legislation whereby families would receive money from the state to transfer from a public to a nonpublic school. The nonpublic school has to meet certain conditions in order to receive the state funds.
HSLDA supports tax credits for homeschooling parents but opposes voucher-type programs because of the inevitable government entanglement in private education.
