In this installment of EdChoice Chats, our President and CEO Robert Enlow talks with Director of Policy Jason Bedrick to get the details on Illinois’s new tax-credit scholarship program—the Invest in Kids Program. They first cover how the program works and who it serves. Then, they dive into the politics of passing a school choice program in such a tough state. They also discuss the program’s weaknesses and our hopes for its future, in spite of those weaknesses.
