Ironically, I don’t support vouchers either because of how that brings grant earmarks into private schools. If something like Healthy Schools gets off the table completely, then I could reexamine vouchers. But with grant angles shirt tailing, the vouchers would be a mechanism for a foot in the door.
I agree! I would like to see private/parochial schools flourish, but I think vouchers from Big Brother would ruin them. The same goes for homeschooling - government funding through tax credits might sound attractive, but it would ruin it.
I’ve met families that switch their children between a Christian school and homeschooling from year to year. I think that’s great. We would love to find an affordable private school for our children, but they’re all out of our price range. Still, I don’t want a voucher system, just like I don’t want universal healthcare. (It’s all the same to me.)
But there are other issues to consider Hunter on. I haven’t ruled anyone out yet.
Doesn’t Hunter also support school choice? That sets up competition, the elixer of upgrading standards across the board.
