School Choice Or Neighborhood Public Schools?

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s first 100 days confirmed our fears – she is unqualified for the job and intent on destroying public education.

We should not allow Congress to divert scarce dollars from our public schools to fund private schools with no accountability for how they spend your tax dollars. Educators know vouchers, which use public tax dollars to subsidize tuition at private schools, don’t work. Instead, they drain critical funding away from 90 percent of the nation’s students who attend public schools.

Let your voice be heard and ensure that an unqualified person intent on destroying our public schools isn’t the only voice legislators hear from. Call your legislators today and tell them to protect funding for public schools! Use this tool on the CAPS site to learn how.
