September 24, 2017 -- Roseville, MN


Not on my dime: how school vouchers fund religion and harm public education, by Patrick Elliott, Senior Counsel, Freedom From Religion Foundation, Inc.

School voucher proponents have pushed legislation to fund private schools with public money in many states across the U.S., including in Minnesota. President Trump has proposed creating a $20 billion federal voucher program. What can you expect if school vouchers continue to expand?

Patrick Elliott will discuss the harmful impact of vouchers and what we can do to stop their rapid expansion. Voucher schemes harm public education and overwhelming fund religious schools, violating the separation between church and state.
