House DFL Education Chairs’ Statement on Private School Vouchers

Thursday, June 3, 2021

St. Paul, MN —House Education Chairs released the following statement on any inclusion of private school vouchers in the E-12 education budget:

“Aside from the fact that using private school vouchers in public education funding is unconstitutional, House DFLers and Minnesotans know public dollars belong in public schools, where 95% of Minnesota students receive their education.

“We encourage Republicans in the House and Senate to focus on negotiating an education budget grounded in reality, constitutionality, and most importantly, what’s best for Minnesota students and families.”
