TELL LAWMAKERS: Defend Our Public Schools Against Vouchers
Our public schools across NC are under threat through proposed legislation that would allow private school vouchers, increase class sizes, reduce accountability, cut teaching assistants and continue to pay teachers poorly. These actions all significantly undermine the quality of our public education system.
And even thought the majority of North Carolinians oppose school vouchers, legislators in the General Assembly have proposed House Bill 944 (“Opportunity Scholarship Act”) – a school voucher program that is wrong for NC’s citizens and students. Vouchers are a scheme to give public school money to religious/private, for-profit companies. That means public schools will have to raise class sizes and make other cuts to get by with less.
PLEASE sign our petition TODAY to stop school vouchers!
