Ranking of 27 General Education Private School Choice Programs, Florida Tax Credit Program Takes Top Spot

The American Federation for Children School Choice Report Card scores 27 active non-special needs voucher, scholarship tax credit and education savings account programs against ideal standards for program quality. The report also serves as a tool to help improve programs and maximize student participation. Programs were evaluated based on student eligibility, scholarship and program size, and accountability. Each of these categories had subcategories that were rated on a scale of 0 to 4 points. The more closely aligned a program is with AFC Growth Fund’s model, the more points the program received. Comparisons were made within and across program types by calculating a percentage of points awarded out of the total points available.
