A brand new poll of American voters has found broad opposition to the privatization of public education. According to the poll, which was conducted by the National School Boards Association and released February 3rd:

  • 64% of voters think funding for public schools should be increased.

  • 26% think funding should be kept the same, and only 6% thinking funding should be decreased.

  • 73% of voters agree with the statement "we should NOT take away public funds from our public schools to fund private, religious, and home school education."

BUT we already knew that the majority of people are against privatizing education. The problem is that some elected officials could care less. With your help, we'll make sure they hear our message to keep public funds for public schools.
