(AP) Romney Wants Tax Help for Home Schooling

Posted at WKRN.COM
Parents who home school their children should get a tax credit to help offset the expense of teaching, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Wednesday.

"I also believe parents who are teaching their kids at home, homeschoolers, deserve a break, and I've asked for a tax credit to help parents in their homes with the cost of being an at-home teacher," he said.

Romney supports giving parents more educational options, through charter schools or vouchers, but he said legislation should be done on a state level.

"I really hesitate to have the federal government become too involved in local schools," he said.

Taxes for schools are collected at the state or district level and should be legislated as such. Thanks for the support though, Mitt.
