Drop lawsuit now

My children attend private school thanks to the tax credit scholarship program. We are hoping the teacher’s union drops the lawsuit against the program once and for all. Why are they fighting us?

This scholarship is important to me because it has allowed my son to get a quality education. I live in the inner city. The schools in my area are not highly rated and don’t work for my son.

I don’t live in an upscale community and should not be punished for it. My son should not be punished, either. He is doing exceptionally well in the private school that he attends, and it is because of this scholarship that I am able to do this.

Drop this lawsuit. Children in lower-income neighborhoods are greatly benefiting from this program. There are already too many obstacles in front of them — education should help them rise above and succeed.
