It takes no time! Just click that link above. Send faxes to your state legislators to oppose back-door vouchers in the name of "Education Investment Tax Credit."
It's a way to reduce the taxes collected by the State for public schools by siphoning monies off to private and parochial schools.
Here's what NYSUT Vice President Andy Pallotta has to say about it:
Introduced with the proposed budget, the Education Investment Tax Credit is a thinly disguised private school voucher scheme offered under the guise of charitable giving for education purposes. Individuals and corporations will be able to reduce their tax bills by sending what they would otherwise owe in taxes to a foundation or educational scholarship organization that will turn the money into a private school voucher or will subsidize tuition at both religious and non-religious private schools.
And the price tag? $170 million in the first year, alone!
