Samson letter: Schools

Why is the media not following this Legislative Bill HJR001 wanting to have public funding flow to religious and private schools? Oh my gosh whatever happened to separation of state and church? This is wrong and should not even get out of committee. Our public schools are hurting enough with being one of the least funded education states. If you want your child to go to private or religious schools then it is for you to pay for it. It is your right and your responsibility, not the general taxpayers’. How dare you. Contact your governor, legislator and say no. Please radio, TV and newspaper start taking an interest in this debate before it goes any further in the Legislature.
