Q.  Isn't the Private School Tax Credit too good to be true?


A. some have questioned the tax credit's validity given our state's public education financial challenges.  To answer questions concerning the tax credit's validity, the legislature contracted with Dr. Charles North of Baylor University whose study found that if the tax credit to private schools were to disappear, the cost to the State of Arizona's public school system would be between $44 million and $186 million.  Thus, the Arizona legislature determined that it is in Arizona's best interest for private schools to continue to thrive.
