Gov. Cuomo Visits Brooklyn Churches and Synagogues to Push Tax Credit Plan

 Governor Andrew Cuomo on Sunday visited churches and synagogues in Brooklyn to stir up support for the "Parental Choice in Education Act.

The Act will provide $150 million in education tax credits annually to parents whose kids attend non-public schools.

While religious schools are in favor of the bill, some public school parents see it as another attempt of the governor to dilute public education, reports the Wall Street Journal.
