Are school vouchers an issue of civil rights or simply a way to bolster private schools by siphoning tax dollars away from public education?
That question was debated vigorously at a town hall meeting Thursday evening sponsored by the San Antonio Express-News and the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Panelists included Justice Foundation President Allan Parker, former state Rep. Kent Grusendorf, Shelley Potter of the San Antonio Alliance of Teachers and Support Personnel, and former Northside Independent School District Superintendent John Folks. Express-News columnist Gilbert Garcia was the moderator.

We praise God for another victory for the cause of religious liberty and prolife! When Adoption Priorities, a San Antonio prolife ministry, tried to post an ad for a Christian couple to be house parents for mothers wanting to place for adoption rather than abort, they were told they could not discriminate in favor of Christians for a Christian ministry. That is illegal and invidious religious bigotry by government, and after months of negotiation the government has backed down rather than be sued.Read More
We were honored that Governor Perry would invite Operation Outcry and The Justice Foundation to attend Sonogram Bill Signing Ceremony at the State Capitol. This was in recognition of The Justice Foundation’s work in collecting the testimonies, but more importantly, the courage of the women of Operation Outcry in giving their testimonies. The Governor’s staff and the Governor were deeply impressed by the courage of the women of Operation Outcry.
Myra Meyers represented Operation Outcry at the signing, and Allan Parker represented The Justice Foundation. Thank you to all of our supportors in helping us work for this bill, and thank you to the women of Operation Outcry, whose submitted testimonies created a big impact in the decision.
