Freedom Act was
passed JANUARY 16th 1789. In honor of that Act several US
have proclaimed it as Religious Freedom Day. Commemorating
for students and parents are available there as well as
Lesson Plans! http://www.ReligiousFreedomDay.com.
You can read the first proclamation.: Presidents
Parents should be prepared to counter discrimination and legal ignorance.

This is like a brother to
above regarding Thomas Jefferson. Let's put this on our
and our ToDo list: Dis-Establish The
Secular Religion from Public Schools.
[See link below.]
This is what Jefferson said: "I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." --Thomas Jefferson* (*The famous quotation ... is from a letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush of September 23, 1800. [ http://etext.virginia.edu/jefferson/quotations/ ]).
The Judiciary and state legislatures and DOE's have forced parents to acknowledge and declare "eternal hostility against every form of" secular school "tyranny over the mind of" their child! See: http://Hisways.org/about/2004DisestablishSecularReligion.htm . This link/page is a slight edit of Jefferson's Religious Freedom Act of 1789 and presumptively suggests that Jefferson might have added these edits if he had known that The Secular Religion would also have to be disestablished!
Report: The Corporate Income Tax Credit Scholarship Program Saves State
The corporate income tax credit scholarship produces a net savings to the state. We estimate Fiscal Year 2007-08, taxpayers saved $1.49 education funding for every dollar loss in corporate income tax revenue due to credits for scholarship contributions.
Expanding the (corporate tax credit) cap on tax credits (from $79.M to $118.M would) produce additional savings if there is sufficient demand for the scholarships. The Legislature may wish to consider expanding the program when the level of tax credits awarded approaches the cap and there is a sufficient waiting list of students who could use the scholarship.
Currently, not all (...) companies in the state have an incentive to participate in the program.
1. "taxpayers saved $1.49 education funding for every" .. $1.00 .. " for scholarship contributions." ! Worth repeating.
2. $79.M served approximately 21,000 students last year and $118.M would serve approximately 31,000 in 2009.
3. A scholarship is valued at: $3,750 last year and about $3,950 this year. This is about half of the $7,500 it takes to educate a FL. student in public school.
4. FL. Parents are encouraged to sign up on a waiting list that will generate 'sufficient demand' [See: The Step Up For Students Program ] [ Check qualifications - Click on the parents/family: "income guidelines chart" (in pdf). ]
5. Local property tax payers should not be locked out from participation in vouchers. The same economies apply; state revenue is state revenue.

Op-ed—Testing Proves Success of Graduates
A line from our January 2003 eNewsLetter that is still applicable: Last year (Dec.+/- 2002) Dr. Dobson of "Focus on the Family" made the recommendation to CA public school parents that they should remove their children from the CA school system due to the liberal indoctrination. It could be described as the radical, reckless and negligent curriculum which I call "MAD" curriculum. 'MAD' stands for Mostly Atheistic Dogma. See "MAD" at: [ http://Hisways.org/about/others-say.htm ].
Sincerely,RE Klenk, - We cannot legislate salvation but we must legislate morality. It's part of our culture.
