Tell Your Legislator: Say No To School Vouchers

Urgent action alert from Iowa House Democrats:

Just 2 more days. If we can keep up the pressure on Republicans for that long, their voucher plan will be dead in Iowa. Sign our petition below then call your legislators and tell them NO vouchers!

School vouchers are up next.

That’s according to the special interests who have teamed up with Betsy DeVos and are running the show in Des Moines these days.  Republicans have already introduced a bill for them to create vouchers in Iowa, which would shift money from public schools to home schools/private schools instead.

If approved, their plan will take away over $200 million from public schools and the result will be a disaster — school closings, higher class sizes, and fewer opportunities for the 92% of Iowa kids in public schools.

Here in Iowa, we pride ourselves on great public schools and we can STOP this plan from becoming law.

If the voucher bill doesn’t make it out of committee by Friday, March 3 it will be DEAD for the year.

Please sign our petition and then share it with your friends and family.

Together, we can stop vouchers and protect our public schools.
