RJV has been actively engaged in the fight against the education tax credit. Over the past few months, this proposal has come up in many forms. Earlier in May, we sent a letter to all members of the Senate and Assembly outlining our position on this issue, and why we oppose this legislation because of strong support for public education and church-state separation.

These education tax credits will direct taxpayer dollars to private, often parochial, schools, where public funds should support public schools. Not only does this bill compromise public education, but it also puts at risk church-state separation when taxpayer dollars support religious schools.
