When the public schools stop observing December 25 as a school holiday, I'll accept that they don't have a religious bias.

So, in places where they get off for Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah they aren't allowed to give December 25 because that's religious bias?

eliminate public schools entirely

Wonderful! Now the worst students can spend ALL DAY LONG getting into trouble. Do you not understand that one of the reasons people want private schools, and the reason there is a push for vouchers, is because private schools can enforce a different discipline, which involves expulsion? That expelling trouble makers, making it easier to focus on students who have families that actually care about education is what people want? They don't want their kids exposed to real trouble makers. That's why they want their kids in private and charter schools. Your throwaway remark about forcing schools to take the bad kids exposes your ignorance of the problem.
