Vouchers would help

I sympathize with your problem but I don't think vouchers are going to help you. Any time I have heard it mentioned by politicians, President Bush included, it has stated for lower income and 'qualified' students. In my cyncical mind, that doesn't include average, hardworking American taxpayers. I think people like you will be out of luck with vouchers.

Yeah, but...

Some vouchers are better than no vouchers. Certainly the kids in the D.C. schools deserve to get them. I can think of some other areas as well -- too many to list.

It's a start.

With vouchers we can expect BIG government to exert even more control over private schools than it does over public schools.

Mmmph, I don't think so, though I wish you were right. My husband is a military retiree. That tells you right there that while we have some security, we aren't exactly doing well. The most productive years of my husband's life were spent in the service of his country, and when he got out, he wasn't prepared to do the job he wants--teaching. Now he's jumping through all the absurd and crazy hoops of the educational unions & colleges.

My husband is working two jobs and going to school full time, while *I* am going to school 3/4 time, and we could definitely qualify for food stamps. If my husband quits one of his jobs, or is fired, we likely WILL NEED food stamps.
