Don Mayhew has been a fierce protector of our public schools for two decades.

Don’s opponent wants your tax dollars going to fund private education! Here’s his response in the Lincoln Journal Star voter guide to a question about ensuring equity:

Question: The district has embarked on efforts to better address equity issues, a focus that began before the Black Lives Matter protests but has intensified since then. What are the best ways for the district to further that work and ensure educational equity for all students?

Michael Patestas: “…allowing school choice in Nebraska will let parents choose either a private or public school option that would best fit their students needs.”

Mr Patestas is WRONG. Taking money from public schools and giving it to private schools won’t ensure educational equity.
