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.
Actually, I fail to see why taxpayers should foot the bill for failing schools as well as help pay for vouchers for those students in failing schools. That just boggles the mind. Why not fix the schools?
My point is many Americans who are supporting and calling for vouchers think it means all you have to do is say you want your child to go to private school and voila!! you have it. Just don't think it will work that way. Now if when the President is calling for vouchers, he states this will not be for the average taxpaying American - this will be another program to help only the minority or low income families - do you think so many would be in favor. They are being misled and that bothers me.
It isn't a start - it is a big leap down the same old path.
