Nebraska legislators are going after public schools! Legislative Bill 753 has been pushed through committee and is headed for a final vote this week. Contact your legislator today and urge them to vote no on this bill to protect school funding!
LB 753 would create a new voucher scheme by providing tax credits for individuals and entities that donate scholarship funds that help pay for students to attend private, often religious, schools. This will fund religious schools at the expense of secular, public education! Instead of focusing on providing a quality education that every child is entitled to, this bill instead would create inequities among public and private institutions. To make matters worse, studies have shown that students who attend these private schools see no significant benefit over public school students. Don’t let public schools suffer so that religious schools can flourish!
This bill is moving fast through the Nebraska Legislature, so please don’t wait to take action! 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.
