Oppose Taxpayer-Funded Giveaways to Private Schools

We’re continuing to watch several dozen bills of interest moving through the Legislature. The ones to speak out about this weekend are a slate of education attacks headed for committee on Tuesday.
School voucher expansions SB1131, SB1657, and SB1707 yet again expand the use of the state’s Empowerment Scholarship Accounts, which suck money out of public education and redistribute it to private and religious schools via tuition vouchers.

The bills are new but the argument against them is still the same. Funding religious schools with public dollars is unconstitutional. And funding private schools with tax dollars is an ineffective rip-off that mainly benefits education privateers.

We’ve put together an action form here. You can use it to contact committee members in as quick as a minute.
