Texas legislators are trying to reroute your tax dollars again!
The latest voucher scheme, House Bill 4340, will wreak havoc on Texas public schools. Take action today to fight back against this bill.
HB 4340 would establish an educational savings account (ESA) program by using taxpayer dollars to fund private — usually religious — education. ESAs are often touted as an effort to “rescue” children from low performance public schools, but this is simply not the case. This bill is open to all parents and students, which will put significant strain on public education. This bill discards Texas’ state Constitution no-aid clause, which specifically prohibits appropriation of public school funds to support sectarian schools. Don’t let Texas lawmakers violate the state Constitution and cripple secular education!
This bill will be heard by the House Public Education Committee on Tuesday, April 11, so there’s no time to delay! We have included suggested language through the “Take Action” button, which can be customized to your liking. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
(Note: You must live in this state to take part in this action alert.)
