Tim: The Education IRA idea sounds good at first, but if you read the full disclosure you'll see that some other new benefits (HOPE Scholarship Credit & Lifetime Learning Credit) may be more beneficial to the parent than using the distribution of an Ed/IRA... In order to preserve the right to use the two new tax credits & still withdraw from a funding source I prefer to use a Roth/IRA or even a traditional IRA! But do read the rules completely before making a decision. Best wishes. PP
