One of the greatest crises facing our state is the continued lack of funding for our public schools.
There is an easy way to provide additional funding for public schools—buy a Helping Schools Tag for your vehicle. When you renew your automobile tags this year, just ask your license commissioner for a Helping Schools Tag. It's only an additional $15—and it's tax deductible. Nearly 75% of the purchase price goes directly to Alabama's public schools. Show your support for public education by putting a Helping Schools Tag on each of your vehicles. Statewide, Helping Schools Tags now generate about $500,000 a year for public schools. This money goes for miscellaneous supplies, freeing up money for hiring new teachers or making capital improvements to our schools.
If only 15% of the driving population of Alabama purchased Helping Schools Tags for their vehicles, the program would generate more than $6 million in additional funding for public schools.
