Ask lawmakers to stop the governor's latest backdoor voucher scheme: oppose the Education Investment Incentive Act!


WHY IT'S IMPORTANT

School funding is NOT a personal piggy bank for the rich!

Governor Cuomo and his hedge fund cronies need to stop acting like it is. And if they aren't willing to stop on their own, we need to stop them.

Take action now at the NYSUT Member Action Center to ask lawmakers to stop the governor's latest backdoor voucher scheme: oppose the Education Investment Incentive Act!

Under the governor's latest backdoor voucher tax credit scheme, hundreds of millions of dollars that should go to public schools and services would be siphoned off... and that money would go to fund a shady private school tax credit that would benefit the privileged elite.

And the price tag? $450 million in the first three years alone!

Albany has already shortchanged public school kids by nearly $5 billion under the Campaign for Fiscal Equity lawsuit and the Gap Elimination Adjustment. Until they make good on their outstanding debts to public schools -- the schools that serve everyone -- it's outrageous that they would even consider a bunch of new tax giveaways for exclusive private schools that can pick and choose their students.

Take action now!
