OU Co-Sponsors Rally for Passage of Private School Tax Credit

Posted on November 22, 2013

On Tuesday, the OU Advocacy Center co-sponsored a 5,000-person rally for tuition affordability at the Westchester County Center. Attended by both New York State legislators as well as several of the area’s Jewish day schools, the rally was the second in a series designed to discuss and promote the Education Investment Tax Credit bill, which would give financial incentives to taxpayers for donations to schools, both public and private, and bring millions of dollars into the schools. OU Advocacy-NY is actively involved in trying to get this legislation passed in Albany as well as advocating for other initiatives that will reduce the burdens of high tuitions placed on families.
