Perhaps there is a person who can explain to me why we have "food stamps" that allow the poor to decide where to shop and what to buy, but we don't "education stamps" and allow those same poor people to decide where to buy an education for their children. But I haven't met that person yet.Two points. A) a lot of people don't want their tax dollars going to support religious schools, and particularly religious schools that practice segregation.B) Even within the voucher system there are going to be horrible, trouble-making students. The private schools can keep them out or kick them out, but the public schools are stuck with them. That brings down the overall grades and scores of the public schools, which means less money goes to them, which means more of the good students leave and eventually only the really horrible students are at the public schools. Unless and until this is corrected for I don't think money should flow to the private schools at the expense of the public schools.Nancy
