To the Editor:

Your article on state ballot issues ("State Ballots Sport Hot-Button K-12 Issues," Sept. 26, 2012) overlooked the Nov. 6 Florida referendum on Amendment 8, a measure intended to remove from the state constitution the prohibition on tax aid for church-related private schools and allow such support through school vouchers.

A growing coalition of teacher, school board, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, civil liberties, and other organizations—known as "Vote No on 8" (VoteNoOn8.com)—is opposing the amendment as an attack on public education, religious freedom, and church-state separation.
