Let your members of Congress know you do not want your tax dollars used to promote privatization but rather for improving our public schools.The $5 billion a year tax credit means that for every dollar a taxpayer or business puts into a voucher fund (an Education Freedom Scholarship), that is a dollar less that they have to pay in federal taxes. That is not charity. That is a taxpayer supported voucher program. Listen here as Senator Kaine explains why he will not support it. And while the budget for charter schools goes up by $60 million to create a half-billion a year fund to expand charter schools, the Trump/DeVos budget eliminates more than two dozen programs including after-school activities in 21st Century Community Learning Centers, Title IV funding for academic support and enrichment, subsidized loans for students and Title II funding for teacher development.
