“The tax credit will ultimately help our granddaughter stay in her school, which is necessary for her special needs and is the only school we have found that addresses her learning differences! The financial aid that she will receive will help out immensely as her father is disabled & has limited resources!”

– Jenny, Oklahoma Grandparent

“I pray everyday this tax credit becomes available to ALL Oklahomans who need a different way to learn. Public education works for some, but there are also many who need different services that many public schools do not provide. Providing this tax credit for ALL Oklahoma children means you are saying yes to children who need a different way of learning.”

- Jacee, Oklahoma Parent

- Rep. Kyle Hilbert
