PPP money was supposed to help small businesses and nonprofits that might have experienced difficulty meeting payroll. Yet millions of tax dollars ended up in the coffers of wealthy private institutions.
Private school vouchers also do not save taxpayers dollars in the long run. The number of students using private school vouchers to leave public schools is so minimal that it does not affect the operating costs of public schools.
During this challenging time, the federal government should focus on providing more resources to our public schools, which are best equipped to serve all students, including our most vulnerable children like students with disabilities.
