Send message to Ronnie Chance - You can't be FOR public schools and FOR vouchers

Vouchers abandon public schools and drain away critical dollars. Vouchers divert attention, commitment and dollars from public schools to pay private school tuition for a few students, including many who already are in private school. Even proposals that purportedly create a new funding stream to pay for vouchers miss the mark: if new public money is available for education it should be invested in strengthening the schools that educate the vast majority of our students – our public schools. Annual proposals to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on private school tuition are especially misguided considering funding for crucial education programs remain drastically underfunded.
