Stop Vouchers: Oppose HB1003 NOW!

Let your Senator and Representative know that using the failed A-F system to give vouchers to 18% of Indiana’s school attendance areas is wrong. It will unfairly impact too many schools that were graded unjustly.  They should vote HB 1003 down until a revised A-F system is in place that has validity in the eyes of the public.  Friday is the last day, so send your final thoughts now! Thanks Vic Smith!!!
1.1 million Hoosier school children depend on their art and music programs. Vouchers will reduce public school funding and that will lead to the marginalization of many of these programs. Write to your Indiana Legislators and tell them to vote no on HB1003!
