Action alert from Progress Iowa –
Public education funding is at risk. Will you help us tell Iowa senators that public tax dollars should stay in public schools?
SF 159, the legislation for school vouchers, has been rushed through committees and senators are now preparing a vote. This legislation would divert funding away from public schools in order to fund non-public schools. That’s why we need your help to contact Senators before today’s debate.
Non-public schools are not held to the same standards as public schools. For example, non-public schools are permitted to discriminate. We cannot allow our public tax dollars to support schools without the proper oversight. Will you join us and tell your senator to vote no on SF 159?
After contacting your senator, please share this to encourage your friends and family to do so as well!
Thanks for your advocacy,
Executive Director, Progress Iowa
