Public dollars should go to public schools. School vouchers and voucher-like schemes is a number one priority for the religious right for good reason — they funnel taxpayer funding primarily to private, religious schools that are unaccountable to taxpayers. These schools are not required to teach an evidence-based curriculum and are allowed to discriminate on the basis of religion, all on the taxpayers’ dime.
Stand up for the separation of church and state and help keep inclusive, secular public schools funded to ensure that all American children have access to an evidence-based education. Tell Congress to oppose efforts to funnel taxpayer dollars to school voucher programs.
