TTEF supports education reform legislation: “Missouri Empowerment Scholarship Accounts Program”
Dear Friends of TTEF,
The Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation (TTEF) joins the Missouri Catholic Conference in support of new education reform legislation which would make education scholarship accounts accessible to more Missouri families, allowing parents to seek the best educational opportunities for their children.
Known as “Missouri Empowerment Scholarship Accounts Program”, the legislation creates a tax credit that provides an incentive for taxpayers to make contributions to educational scholarship organizations that offer scholarships to students to attend private or parochial schools.
As the largest elementary school scholarship organization in the state of Missouri, TTEF believes that this legislation would be a true benefit to thousands more Missouri families who deserve the freedom of choice to provide the best school options for their children. These education scholarship accounts would allow public school students struggling in their current educational setting, students attending school for the first time, or children of active-duty military members to seek alternative educational opportunities.
The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has revealed just how important school choice is for Missouri families. When other schools closed, private and faith-based schools remained open, offering parents the choice of how their children would learn – in person, virtual and hybrid learning environments – with students’ health and safety as the top priority. More Missouri families deserve this freedom of educational choice.
The Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation encourages you to join us in support of the “Missouri Empowerment Scholarship Accounts Program” on behalf of Missouri children and families. We invite you to learn more and submit your message of support online here at the Missouri Catholic Conference Action Center.
