Letter: Public funding for public schools

February 26, 2014 

I oppose SJR 9 and HR 1 regarding public funding for private schools.

First, the fight of religious groups for school funds will tear apart our communities because of the religious differences among us.

Second, private schools will become more for the rich, and public schools will become more for the poor, creating segregation for children of poor parents for purposes of education. Our ideals of no state established religion and equality should require using public funds for only public education.
