We want you to be the first to know that the Alliance for School Choice will launch our 2009-10 School Choice Yearbook today.

Fighting for Opportunity, the Yearbook is the nation's leading digest of facts, statistics, and trend data regarding America's 18 private school choice programs. 

The Yearbook is filled with everything you need to know about the modern school choice movement, with a specific focus on events and activities in 2009 and 2010. For example:

·         Despite the worst economic climate in decades, funding for school voucher and scholarship tax credit programs increased by $29 million this year, and student enrollment is up by 5 percent, to nearly 180,000. 

·         There are 11 states (plus D.C.) offering either school voucher programs or scholarship tax credit programs, and five of these programs are designed specifically to help students with special needs.

·         Florida has more students enrolled in school choice programs than any other state in the country (46,900 students).

·         Indiana is the newest state to add a school choice program, a $2.5 million corporate and individual scholarship tax credit program that will begin serving students in 2010.
