Welcome to the ICPE website

The ICPE is a new, bi-partisan non-profit organization. Its mission is to focus public tax dollars on the K-12 education of public school students by opposing legislation in the Indiana General Assembly that would:
  • fund private school vouchers
  • expand private school tax credits
  • privatize charter schools by allowing private colleges and agencies to be authorizers
  • put for-profit managers in place to take a profit from operating public schools
  • privatize public schools through any other means

Have you seen this video about how public school budgets are being drained by vouchers and tax credits? That's exactly what's happening in Indiana, plus the property tax caps.


The Center for Tax & Budget Accountability released a study April 16 saying there is "no compelling policy reason to subsidize Indiana school vouchers with public taxpayer dollars."  Read about it here or click here for a copy of the study.
