Technology and Thumbs Together Advocating for the Opportunity Scholarship Act
There are many ways to show your support for school choice in New Jersey. You can write your legislator, call your legislator, and rally with thousands of other advocates. And now, Garden State residents can use technology and their thumbs to text their support of the Opportunity Scholarship Act.
Thanks to E3 (Excellent Education for Everyone), all supporters have to do is text the word OSANOW to 99000 and key in the number that best describes the city of residence. And you’ve just shown your support for the OSA!
So why should we be texting for school choice?
Well, the OSA would create a tax credit scholarship program for low-income students trapped in the state's worst-performing school districts, finally giving their parents the opportunity to send them to high-quality schools. New Jersey has a bipartisan coalition supporting this program—including Governor Chris Christie and Democratic Mayor Cory Booker.
