Alexandria, Va. – Nov. 7, 2017 –AASA, The School Superintendents Association, is among 33 national education and other civic groups applauding legislation that would bar corporations and successful investors from earning huge profits by transferring public funding to private schools.

The Public Funds for Public Schools Act, introduced by U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell (D-Ala.), would ensure that the federal government can stop Americans from profiting from their donations to voucher programs that deplete resources from public schools.

In a letter sent to Sewell, the groups said, “The (legislation) would ensure that the federal government is no longer able to sanction a tax shelter for wealthy Americans who opt to enrich themselves by donating money to state voucher programs.”
