No on HB 148, No to Vouchers: Conclusion

Legislators must stand above special interests and make decisions based on research and proven methods. Personal stories of the successes of private schools are compelling, but they do not represent the results of peer-reviewed studies, which again are not conclusive. I ask the Legislature drop this bill, drop this concept, and adopt stronger public education standards, higher public education funding, and create greater opportunities for school choice without putting tax dollars into private education.
