About | Public Funds Public Schools
Efforts to undermine public education by promoting the use of public funds for private education – including through various kinds of private school vouchers (traditional private school vouchers, tax credit vouchers, and education savings account vouchers, among others) must be met with a robust, sustained response to safeguard the nation’s public schools.
Public Funds Public Schools is a national campaign supported by the Southern Poverty Law Center, Education Law Center, and Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP that strives to ensure that all public funds for education are used to maintain and support public schools. PFPS uses a range of tools to protect and promote public education, including litigation, advocacy, and research.
