If your goal is to spend hundreds of millions of state tax dollars for students to LEARN LESS, Indiana has just the plan for you: VOUCHERS for private school tuition!
In fact, voucher programs across the country are rife with fraud, and, despite enrolling only the students they prefer (and rejecting those they don’t want), their students lose ground academically. Voucher schools are not required to meet state standards and are allowed to keep their operations “private” – with no accountability to the taxpayers who are footing the bill. Mississippi’s own ESA voucher program has been cited for fraud, starting in its very first year of operation.
The same privatizers who pushed Mississippi’s ESA voucher program now want to expand it.
Tell candidates for the Legislature and statewide office that you oppose vouchers for private school tuition. The public’s funds belong in the public’s schools!
