Nebraska Teachers Union Launches Petition To End School Choice

  • The Nebraska State Education Association (NSEA) has launched a petition to end its state’s maiden voyage into school choice.
  • NSEA launched Support Our Schools Nebraska to run the petition, which began distributing signature sheets this week. NSEA must gather about 60,000 signatures by August 30 in order to qualify for the ballot next November.
  • The petition launched a day after Nebraska Governor Jim Pillen signed the bill enacting school choice — LB753, or the Opportunity Scholarship Act — into law.
