Nebraska loves its public schools!

It remains one of the few states to reject vouchers, charters, and the Common Core.

Nebraska’s Legislature said NO again to vouchers!

Subject: With your help, we defeated LB 670!

 

For the third year in a row, with your help, we did it. 

On Monday, Senator Linehan’s tax-credit scholarship bill, LB 670, had its floor debate. Senators from across the state spoke out in strong opposition and successfully filibustered another effort towards school privatization. 

This is an achievement worth celebrating. Nebraska remains one of only a handful of states without charter schools, vouchers, or tax-credit scholarship programs despite study after study demonstrating just how harmful they are.

We at Stand For Schools are proud of the hard work by many this legislative session to protect our state’s excellent public schools and advance public education in Nebraska. Please know your calls and emails have made a difference. Thank you!

Thank you also to the many, many senators who listened to you and engaged in such a respectful and robust debate Monday afternoon.

Together, we did it!
