Dear Families, Friends, and Supporters:
Please read and click through to our Voter Voice system to put your message in front of Congress! Voter Voice – NJ Catholic Conference
THE ISSUE: Congress is debating the next round of Stimulus Funding. Families who attend Catholic Schools are struggling to pay tuition and schools are scrambling to meet additional expenses of COVID-19. Catholic school communities have been severely impacted by COVID-19. Private schools, including Catholic Schools serve 10% of all K-12 students in the United States.
THE ASK: 1. That private school students receive Equity in COVID-19 relief services offered to public schools; 2. Tuition assistance for struggling families; and 3. Tax deductions or credits for families’ education expenses to help in the struggle to pay for school tuition now.
THE ACTION: Please click through to this link: Voter Voice – NJ Catholic Conference to follow the prompts on NJ Catholic Conference’s Voter Voice. In just a few clicks, you can ask Congress to help our Catholic School Families stay in their Catholic schools. Please use Voter Voice by 7/24/20 so your voice has the greatest impact!
THE RATIONALE: Catholic schools save taxpayers millions of dollars. COVID-19 has gravely impacted finances of families and schools alike. Keeping 10% of all K-12 students in private schools helps families choose the education that works best for their children while saving significant money and strain of overcrowding for public schools.
