Law Center Urges General Assembly to Reject EISC

The Law Center recently joined over a dozen other organizations in expressing concerns to the General Assembly over the proposed $450 million Education Improvement Scholarship Credit (EISC). The EISC would re-direct money from revenue collections and thus reduce revenue to programs and services like education. This comes at a time when budget cuts have already forced school districts to make drastic reductions to programs and supports that raise achievement among students who are academically at risk. In our letter, available here, we urge the General Assembly to reject this proposal and fulfill its obligation to ensure that all students in the Commonwealth receive a free and appropriate public education.
