On April 25, 2017, the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, Education Next, and the Hoover Institution teamed up to bring forth two pointed discussions on the idea of a federal tax-credit scholarship program.

First: To do or not to do? Neal McCluskey and Tom Carroll debated the merits of a federal tax credit scholarship program: is there a role for Uncle Sam or will the feds inevitably muck this up?

Second: National, or state-by-state? Darla Romfo and Travis Pillow tackled the question of whether the initiative should require states to opt-in, and set the rules, or if a federal tax credit should allow for K-12 scholarships nationwide.

Moderators:
Martin West, Education Next; Harvard Graduate School of Education
Derrell Bradford, NYCAN

Debators:
Thomas Carroll, Invest in Education
Neal McCluskey, Cato Institute
Darla Romfo, Children’s Scholarship Fund
Travis Pillow, Step Up For Students
