Georgia taxpayers are filing suit because of the money leaving public schools to support private, anti-gay religious schools.

“Georgia’s tax credit program siphons off much-needed funds from the state’s public schools by allowing taxpayers to donate scholarship money to private religious schools, according to a lawsuit.

Four taxpayers filed the suit, claiming the state has failed to adequately fund its underachieving public schools while helping to pay for religious instruction, in Fulton County Superior Court, reported Courthouse News.

Lead plaintiff Raymond Gaddy claims the scholarship organizations violate the state constitution.
