(OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.) – Today, Gov. Kevin Stitt delivered his 2024 State of the State address. During his address, Gov.

Personal education tax credit programs like the one passed in Oklahoma are extremely popular among voters. Two-thirds of the general public – and 80% of parents of K-12 students – support personal education tax credits, and two-thirds of parents believe they will improve education in our country, according to a recent poll by yes. every kid. foundation. and YouGov.  

“Every single child in Oklahoma now has the opportunity to attend a school that works for them regardless of their income or home address,” said Tom Newell, vice president, yes. every kid. “Thanks to the governor’s leadership, thousands of students and families have been empowered to pursue a learning environment that best meets their individual needs. The demand for this program was evident, with tens of thousands of applicants pouring in shortly after the application window opened. We look forward to continuing to work with the governor and ensuring Oklahoma remains a leader in education freedom.”
