Detroiters Yearn For Tuition Tax Credits

Of course, the following ideas are opposed by the teachers' unions who are supported by the liberal administration, so very little is expected to be done, as supported by the de-funding of the highly successful Charter School program in Washington DC.

Excerpt:By supporting tuition tax credits, Detroiters clearly understand the powerful potential of unleashing more school choice in the city. Research confirms their convictions. Of 10 recent scientific studies, all but one showed significant academic gains for students participating in these types of school choice programs.

Other notable ideas supported by Detroiters contained in the survey are:
• Removing ineffective teachers (86 percent)
• Increasing pay for very effective teachers (81 percent)
• Freeing school principals to make staffing decisions (74 percent)
• Contracting out administrative services (71 percent)
• Privatizing noninstructional services (65 percent)
• Creating new public charter schools (71 percent)
