Tell Indiana legislators – It makes no sense
The Indiana legislature is prepared to increase spending on private school vouchers by 70% ($1.1 billion) compared to a mere 5% increase for traditional public schools. Nearly 90% of Hoosier kids attend public schools, while 7% are in voucher schools.
This is outrageous.
Indiana will be paying for wealthy families who can already afford to pay their private school tuition–and do. While public schools struggle to fund building improvements and provide things like transportation for students, this proposed budget gives charter schools a new stream of operations funding at the expense of traditional public schools.
