FLYER RECEIVED FROM PA NAACP OPPOSING TAXPAYER FUNDED TUITION VOUCHERS:

EQUITY FOR UNIVERSAL PUBLIC EDUCATION -
EVERY SCHOOL FULLY RESOURCED, EVERY STUDENT PREPARED TO SUCCEED!


PA NAACP OPPOSES

LAWS THAT PIT PENNSYLVANIANS AGAINST EACH OTHER
AND LEAVE MANY CHILDREN BEHIND


WE OPPOSE POLICIES THAT LEAVE CHILDREN IN UNDERFUNDED SCHOOLS

WE OPPOSE THE USE OF TAX DOLLARS TO IMPRISON RATHER THAN TO ENLIGHTEN

WE OPPOSE ELECTED OFFICIALS USING THEIR POWER TO
STAND BETWEEN THE CITIZENS OF PENNSYLVANIA AND THEIR RIGHT TO A FREE AND APPROPRIATE UNIVERSAL PUBLIC EDUCATION SYSTEM THAT EQUIPS ALL CHILDREN FOR SUCCESS

WE OPPOSE USING TAX PAYER FUNDS TO PROVIDE TUITION VOUCHERS TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS!


PENNSYLVANIA CANNOT AFFORD TO BE DIVIDED ON THIS ISSUE.

$35,000 TO KEEP A KID IN JAIL FOR 1 YEAR.
$35,000 TO PREPARE 4 KIDS FOR SUCCESS IN A PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOM
$36,000 TO WRITE FOUR $9,000 CHECKS TO UNMONITORED SCHOOLS WHOSE PRODUCT IS UNCERTAIN AND WHERE CHILDREN’S RIGHTS ARE UNPROTECTED
$$$$$ MILLIONS IN UNDEFINED COSTS FOR A STATE BUREAUCRACY TO PASS OUT VOUCHER (OPPORTUNITY GRANT) CHECKS.

THE COST IS TOO HIGH! 
PUBLIC MONEY FOR UNIVERSAL PUBLIC SCHOOLS!

CONTACT YOUR SENATOR AND REPRESENTATIVE
AND Say NO to VOUCHERS!
