The Pennsylvania legislature is pushing through a voucher bill without public hearings -- to raid public school funds & transfer tax dollars to unaccountable private and religious schools: SB 2, Education Savings Accounts for Students in Underperforming Schools, sets up vouchers with no oversight and an extremely broad criterion for how the vouchers can be spent. (One parent bought school supplies, returned them, and bought the family a big-screen television). As we've seen in other voucher states like Indiana and Wisconsin, the vast majority of voucher money ends up in private religious schools, supporting students who were never in public school to begin with. This is not the 1st time someone has tried to push a voucher bill, and it won't be the last. But it is time, once again, for defenders of public education to hit the phones!"
