Andrew Cuomo is proposing tax credit legislation that is generally considered a backdoor voucher. Corporations and wealthy people will get tax credits for supporting private and religious schools. The Legislature killed this proposal less than two months ago, but Cuomo is back with it on behalf of religious hroips that supported his election. (This is also ALEC legislation.)

No surprise that the Wall Street billionaire-funded group which is deceptively named”Families for Excellent Schools” is supporting Cuomo’s tax credit proposal and advocating lifting or eliminating the cap on charter schools. These families are not your average New York City families, though they pretend to be. this group spent $5 million in TV advertising last year to secure free rent for charters and to block Mayor De Blasio’s effort to regulate charters. These families have names like Walton and Paul Tudor Jones. It is doubtful that any of them ever attended a public school or sent their children to one. They are mad about charter schools because they are free-market fundamentalists.

This is their press release:

FAMILIES FOR EXCELLENT SCHOOLS URGES PASSAGE OF EDUCATION TAX CREDITS AND LIFTING OF CHARTER CAP

New York, NY – Families for Excellent Schools released this statement Tuesday afternoon following the introduction of the Governor Cuomo’s bill on education tax credits:

“Every parent should be able to choose a great school for their child. Passing the education tax credit and lifting the cap on charters expands choice immediately for families that need it most.

Today’s announcement is a bold step by Governor Cuomo to protect choice and ensure access to good schools in New York,” said Families for ExcellentSchools’ CEO Jeremiah Kittredge.

Families for Excellent Schools harnesses the power of families to advance policy and political changes that create and sustain excellent schools.
