The Delaware Catholic Advocacy Network is asking Catholics in the First State to assume the state budget continues to include a transportation stipend for the parents of children in Catholic schools. The network released the following statement:
“Each year, parents who send their children to Catholic schools in Delaware save the state an estimated $150 million while supporting Delaware’s public schools with their taxes. In return, the state gives these families a stipend to reimburse them for a small percentage of their transportation costs. Now, that stipend is in danger of elimination. Neighboring Pennsylvania provides total transportation for Catholic and other private school children and Maryland provides partial text-book reimbursement.”
Tell the governor and your representatives in the Delaware General Assembly that families who sacrifice to send their children to Catholic schools deserve to keep their transportation reimbursement stipend. Click “TAKE ACTION” to send them an email.
