Here is a post from a blog out of Chicago, King Solomon, Chicago Teachers Strike the Needed Impetus to …..
Are school vouchers a good idea? Well, there are powerful special interests that are adamantly opposed to the idea. As citizens and voters, should we listen to the special interests, or should we do what is best for our children and our country? Of course, we should do what is best for our childten and our country.
What is the best argument against school vouchers? Some foolish people will try to use school vouchers, taxpayers money, to set up schools that teach children things most Americans abhor. Unfortunately, we already have government officials teaching children things most Americans abhor. So, perhaps we ought consider whether parents will generally pick better schools for their children and get more value for our dollars.
It really comes down to this. Does the cost of putting politicians, people we don’t trust, in charge of the education of our children outweigh the benefit?
