On Monday, the Kansas House Education committee voted to significantly expand the state’s very limited scholarship tax credit program. The current program is limited to at-risk, low-income students attending specific public schools and only served 75 students in 2015. House Bill 2457 expands eligibility to all low-income students in the state and increases the amount of the tax credit from 70% to 90% of the amount contributed to a scholarship organization. The bill received support from many organizations and individuals including the head of school of the only Jewish school in Kansas, the Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy. The bill now heads to the House floor for a vote.
