It’s time for Nebraska to Invest in Kids

Our state senators need to hear from you.

Now is the time to take action in support of a parent’s right to decide where his or her child is best suited to receive a well-rounded, challenging  and fulfilling education—be it in a public or private school—regardless of the family’s income status.

When a child is educated in an environment where they thrive—rather than get by or fall behind—everyone benefits.

Join thousands of Nebraskans by investing in kids and showing your senator school choice is an important step forward for our families and our state.

Student Success Stories

“The future looks nice today because I can see my children attending college. I thank [generous donors] for the support that is given to us with the scholarships because, in our situation, attending a private school would be impossible—just a dream.”

—Macaria Hutado, single mother of five, private school scholarship recipient

“I am thankful for the opportunity to choose the school I want to go to, and I love my mom for letting me go here. I think I’m here to help other people be successful. That’s why I want to become a teacher.”

—Nicholas Heidelberg, eighth-grade student, private school scholarship recipient

“At my new school, we’re like one family. We work together towards a goal. We are all friends, not just those who are in my class. On the academic side, I have grown a lot in writing. Math is not my strength, but the teachers are always there to offer step-by-step help, and we have tests every week. I participate in retreats, and I participate in community service to serve food to those who really need it. I like that the most.”

—Michelle Esquivel, 12th-grade student, private school scholarship recipient
