NJ Action Alert, say NO to school vouchers!

The Opportunity Scholarship Act, S 340, would divert funds from public schools to private, sectarian religious schools through a pilot program that would incentivize taxpayers to donate to voucher programs, using a tax credit as a reward. Take action and tell your Senator to oppose S 340.

This bill, now being considered by the Senate Education Committee, is a blatant violation of the constit...utional separation between church and state. Private religious schools are not required to follow the same civil rights laws or educational requirements as public schools. That means they can discriminate against LGBT or disabled students or teach creationism in their science classrooms while the taxpayers foot the bill. Urge your Senator to vote against S 340.
