Defend separation of church and state.  Stop the raid on the public school funds.The GOP in the House of Representatives has filed legislation (HR610) that  requires states to adopt vouchers or lose their federal funding.This is step one of the Trump-DeVos agenda to force vouchers and charters on states that do not want them. This is a blatant misuse of federal power to coerce states to go along with religious zealots like DeVos. Let your Representative in Congress know that you oppose this egregious federal overreach. If you believe in public schools with certified teachers who teach modern science and history, and do not want your tax dollars to fund evangelical religious schools, madrassas, or yeshivas, get active --  repel this obnoxious legislation.  the steps you can take to oppose it are included here.  Defend your  public schools.
