Re: Approval of Waldorf Charter School in Novato
Dear Charperson Benz and Members of the School Board:
I am writing as Vice President of the local chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, to oppose approval of the Waldorf charter school in Novato, on the grounds that public funding should not go to support a sectarian institution. From my phone conversation yesterday with Ms. Benz, I understand that approval of this school is on the consent calendar for this evening's board meeting. I appreciate Ms Benz's agreeing to distribute my letter to the other board members before this evening's meeing (hopefully in time for them to review it before the meeting). I would also appreciate it if this letter would be included in the official record of the board meeting proceedings. Thank you.
I. Every transfer of money from the government to a religious or sectarian private school would violate the California Constitution.

SCHOOL VOUCHERS OFFER HOPE TO POOR FAMILIES,
$3 BILLION IN 'TAX RELIEF FOR THE WELL-OFF' While school vouchers promise urban families a way to escape mediocre public schools, California's Proposition 38 would provide a $3 billion bonus to affluent parents whose children already attend private school, according to a study released today [Sept. 20] by scholars at UC Berkeley and Stanford University. Voters will decide the fate of Prop. 38, authored by Silicon Valley entrepreneur Tim Draper, on November 7. If approved, any California parent could obtain a voucher worth at least $4,000, then move their child from a public to a private or religious school. The researchers dissected the many provisions of Prop. 38 and forecast its downstream implications for taxpayers, children, and schools. They conclude that no one really knows how many families would actually use the new vouchers, covering less than two-thirds the yearly cost of educating a child, and achievement effects could be small, given the limit efficacy of small-scale voucher experiments underway in a half-dozen cities around the nation. "The devil with small voucher programs has always been in the detailshow they are designed and what kinds of families they best serve," according to Luis Huerta a coauthor of the new report. "And Prop. 38 is bedeviled with many unknowns."

California's Row over Vouchers
Poor Say They Want Private-School Access, Too
By Michael Fumento
Investor's Business Daily, September 24, 1993
"There are some proposals that are so evil that they should never even be presented to the voters," California Teachers Association President D.A. Weber said recently. No, the talked-of evil did not involve killer whales being fed puppies. And the subject? Legalizing drug use? Feeding puppies to killer whales at San Diego's Sea World? No, the proposal in question was giving tuition vouchers to California parents who choose to educate their children outside the public school system. If California approves Proposition 174 in November, it would become the first state in the country to allow parents to send their children to private schools at taxpayer expense. The voucher would be worth a little over $2,600, equivalent to half the amount the state pays to educate a child in the public schools. A Los Angeles Times poll released last week showed the voucher initiative trailing narrowly, by 45% to 39%.

You are currently visiting the ACLU online archives. These pages are not updated. For the latest information from the ACLU, go to TO: Interested Parties FROM: Robert S. Peck, Legislative Counsel DATE: January 22, 1992 RE: Private School Choice Demonstration Amendment The proposed school choice demonstration amendment to S. 2 would permit states to include private and parochial schools as "choice schools," notwithstanding contrary provisions of state law. While this effectively preempts state law after the Secretary of Education awards grants for the demonstration projects, it does not and cannot do so before an award is made. Therefore, a number of states, operating under state constitutions that prohibit the public funding of sectarian schools or institutions, are ineligible to apply for the grants. A government has only the power and authority granted to it by the people through a constitution. This is the foundation of a nation that observes "the rule of law." Just as the authority of the federal government is limited by the powers granted and denied by the federal Constitution, the authority of the state governments are limited by the powers granted and denied by their respective state constitutions. Where a state constitution prohibits public funding of sectarian institutions, the state would violate its constitution when it applied for the grant program contemplated by the choice demonstration amendment because it would exceed its constitutional authority. Thus, the following states are constitutionally inhibited from participating in the choice demonstration and cannot benefit from the amendment under consideration:

Served by the Los Angeles Unified School District (L.A.U.S.D.) and a number of private and parochial schools, students in the Universal City-North Hollywood community benefit from top-notch faculties, curriculums that ensure academic and personal achievement, active parent groups, and a wide range of extracurricular programs, which combine for an exceptional educational experience for all. Local children don’t have to travel far to get to their desks. Three public schools located in North Hollywood take kids from kindergarten through twelfth grade. With educational excellence as their goal, an elementary, middle, and high school supply the coursework, activities, and sports programs that promote a well-rounded student. Lankershim Elementary School, "Lair of the Lankershim Lions" at 2520 Bakman Avenue in North Hollywood, provides students from kindergarten through fifth grade with opportunities to achieve their highest academic and social potential, encourages parental involvement, and celebrates diversity while fostering discipline.

Within a few years, though, things began to change. The promise of an education for the Perez children turned into an uphill struggle against a public education system that was crumbling from neglect, political bickering, and economic recession. In the neglected districts of the San Joaquin Valley, gangs gained such strength that parents started pulling their children out of the public schools. Charter schools, parochial schools, even home schooling looked like better alternatives than subjecting their children to violence and intimidation.

    77. The Columbus Free Press - Reflections On Black History
    Only two places in california would black teachers in the public schools the t hire its first black teacher until 1944, and that was for a parochial school.
    Part 60 Separate but equal by Thomas C. Fleming, Nov 11, 1998 During the 1930s, I was a college student at three different campuses in Northern California Chico State College, the University of California at Berkeley, and San Francisco State College. The only segregated schools in the state at that time were the public schools in the Imperial Valley, on the Mexican border, inland from San Diego County. Most students in those schools were Mexicans, and blacks were placed there too. From my observation, there were always slightly more black women going to college than black males, even though their job opportunities were more limited. Most women graduates went into teaching or nursing. A smattering became doctors or dentists. There weren't many jobs for black secretaries then. For clerical work, both black men and women could get civil service jobs, particularly in the post office or the customs service, but not in private industry. Only two places in California would black teachers in the public schools the Imperial Valley, and the city of Los Angeles, which probably had more than half the black population of the state. Oakland, where the second largest number of blacks lived, had one black teacher, Ida Jackson. She was already teaching grade school when I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1926, but they didn't let any more after her for a long time. San Francisco didn't hire its first black teacher until 1944, and that was for a parochial school.
