On Monday, the Indiana Senate is expected to vote on a bill, HB 1003, that would expand the state's school voucher program. The Center for Inquiry (CFI) opposes school voucher programs and urges you to immediately contact your state senator and tell them to vote “no."
Sponsors of school voucher programs sell vouchers as a cure for our ailing education system. However, vouchers are actually a backdoor attempt to take money away from our shared public schools and funnel it to private schools — the vast majority of which are sectarian institutions that indoctrinate children with religious dogma and pseudoscience.
School voucher programs are a big problem. Why?
Instead of supporting private and religious schools, taxpayer money should be used to support and improve the public school system, which provides a religiously neutral, constitutionally sound, and evidence-based education.
Contact your state senator today and tell them to reject any expansion of the school voucher program!
Please Reject School Voucher Bill
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a friend of the Center for Inquiry, I am writing to ask you to oppose House Bill 1003, which would expand Indiana's school voucher program.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
