An increasing number of Georgia families are looking for ways to send their children to private schools.

There is more demand than there are resources.

Georgia GOAL scholarship program hosted a meeting at Sherwood Christian Academy this morning.

Donors make contributions in exchange for Georgia income tax credits which helps to provide tuition for students wanting to attend private K -12 schools.

GOAL President Lisa Kelly says the challenge is getting the message to Georgia elected officials to increase the number of tax credits.

The cap is currently 58 million that GOAL says is less than what is provided for public schools. 

Kelly says, "We would hope the cap would be increased to 100 million allowing more individuals and corporations to make these tax credit contributions so that more families can send their children to the schools of their choice."
