Private School Subsidy Included in Tax Reform

The latest tax plan being floated in Congress includes a generous tax break for wealthy families that send their children to private schools. Education Historian and Research Professor Diane Ravitch notes that the subsidy could be worth up to $30,000 a year in tuition costs.

“What happened to the middle class?” Ravitch asks. “Forget about them. This tax break will cost taxpayers up to $600 million.”
