ENCOUNTERING CHRIST

Answering to the Humanitarian Crisis in Arizona

You have probably heard "ICE is dropping off refugees in Phoenix". These are not "illegal aliens". They are not felons. Most these days, are families often with very small children. They have been interviewed by Customs and Border Patrol and approved to stay and apply for asylum.

Fr. John Bonavitacola A Letter from Fr. John

Rats, Choice and Credits

02-16-2020Fr. John Bonavitacola

Dear Friends,

This seems to fit right in with the Year of the Rat theme. The AZ Department of Education released the names and personal information of 7,000 AZ families who use Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (ESA). The Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) program is an account administered by The Arizona Department of Education that is funded by state tax dollars to provide educational options for qualified Arizona students. This also allows parents to choose from a variety of alternative educational services including private schools and home-schooling to fit the special educational needs of their child.

The information that was released included the account balances, the names and email addresses and the grade in which the student is enrolled and special needs students had their disabilities listed. To make matters worse the information was released to an organization called Save Our Schools, that opposes the scholarships and school choice in general. That’s not all. The AZ Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman has publicly stated her opposition to ESA’s, making the release of the information to an anti-school choice group all the more disturbing. The Education Department, claimed, “oops, sorry” an honest mistake. But I can’t help smelling a rat.
