“Not if it’s a refund to the State taxpayers.”

It’s not going back to tax payers. The $8,500 is going to the people who pay no taxes yet consume most of the govt services. This is redistribution dressed up.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I support your arguments against vouchers, but not this one.

Government owned and run socialist-entitlement schooling **IS IS IS ** redistribution disguised under the euphemism of “public school”.

There isn't much good about vouchers but this is good. It reduces the redistribution to the child's tuition-free schooling by **many** thousands of dollars.

By the way...What ever the state claims that it costs to educate a child in a government owned and run socialist-entitlement school, **DOUBLE** or **TRIPLE** that amount. Government school accounting practices would make an Enron accountant blush!

Sounds like Section 8 housing. The notion behind Section 8 was to get welfare families into stable middle-class neighbourhoods to assimilate them to middle-class norms. The hope was that living in a middle-class environ would encourage those welfare families to straighten up a bit and loose their self-defeating 'Hood habits.

Didn't work out that well...
