The Georgia Senate is set to hear SB 233, a massive voucher bill on Monday. GAE aggressively opposes this bill. This is a bill that steals money from Georgia public schools to bankroll private schools for the wealthy. We must continue to fully fund our Georgia public schools and ensure that every child from the big cities to small rural school districts has a neighborhood school where they can learn, grow, and thrive. GAE adamantly opposes a bill that attempts to create separate and unequal schools by legislation that will funnel public funds into private institutions. Please email and contact your Senator and ask them to oppose SB 233. Click the link below!
