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

Visit legislators Monday and Tuesday (March 10-11) and let them know not to ERASE funding for public schools through the repeal of business personal property tax unless they REPLACE the revenue!
ICPE joins the "Replace Don't Erase" Coalition in saying that the business personal property tax should not be eliminated unless ALL public school revenue is replaced. Our public schools can't handle more revenue cuts. Read about the Coalition's position here.
YOUR MESSAGES MADE A DIFFERENCE in the bill for control of student records!
