New York’s political leaders are negotiating the state’s education budget. A Republican proposal would give huge tax breaks to people and corporations that donate money to privately operated charter schools and scholarships for students to attend religious schools.
More than a half billion dollars in taxpayer money is at stake, not to mention our core values – by funding religious schools, this is an end run around the separation of church and state.
