It’s a start, but that’s not what’s making PS disappear.
Vouchers are just keeping a middle man in the schools.

What is being pushed in my area is tax breaks. People are homeschooling and there huge support for a break from taxes. Vouchers failed here. But most of MI (short of the cities) likes the tax breaks because it cuts the middle man.

The reason why private school vouchers are such a threat to both the NEA and Dems power is because they show that there is a better alternative to shoveling more and more money to a failed system

As long as Dems can kill those alternatives, with help of a few Republicans here, they can claim that failing to spend more money is a ‘hating kids’.(more specifically 'minority kids')

What many here forget is that elected Republicans tend to be terrified of being accused of being against schools, so it continues.

In 2004 GWB cut a deal with dems on NCLB and Republicans claimed it was a brilliant political move for his re-election. You think Romney will be braver on this than GWB was?
