EDUCATION CHOICE AND LB 295  Tuesday Nov 28, 2017 01:51 pm  By Kevin Dodson

Dear Parents,

Please read the following note from the Nebraska Catholic Conference and contact our elected officials to voice your support:

Education Choice and LB 295:

The Church teaches that public authorities must establish “concrete conditions” for parents to exercise their right to choose an education for their children that best meets their needs (CCC 2229).

LB 295: Nebraska’s three Catholic bishops are supporting LB 295 (the Opportunity Scholarship Act) currently being considered by the Nebraska Legislature. LB 295 would enact a tax credit (beyond a tax deduction) for donations to nonprofit organizations, which must turn nearly all of their revenue into K-12 private-school scholarships for poor and working-class children.

Exists in Other States; Not Vouchers: At least 18 other states have similar “tax-credit scholarship” laws, including Iowa, Kansas, and South Dakota. Many say that tax-credit scholarships are the same as vouchers. This is false, because vouchers shift public funds from public schools to private school students, while scholarship tax credits incentivize private donations to nonprofit organizations for private-school scholarships.

Action: Write letters or messages of support to: (a) the Governor, (b) state senators, and (c) the editor of your local newspaper. Learn more at
