As you may have heard a handful of voucher initiatives by Restore Washington, a conservative political group that seeks to repeal legislative progress in Olympia via the initiative process, may be headed for Washington's ballot.

Most versions of these initiatives create a “family empowerment scholarship” (voucher) for families sending students to private schools or home schooling.

The Washington Education Association has put together this handy fact-sheet about these ballot initiatives. Please take the time to read through it and consider the impacts these initiatives would have on our already-underfunded public schools and the students who attend them - then share it with your friends and family so they can have all the facts when they're asked to sign a petition or vote on one of these initiatives.
