They don’t want to give parents a choice because the parents will “self-select” into segregated
“give a damn about my kids”
“don’t give a damn about my kids”
I hope one of the arguments was the current public shool monopoly is failing to actually educate our children
Good news; I hope it spreads.
Public schools are redistribution of wealth, and they are the ultimate propaganda machines. I can think of no thing that is so evil.
The real question is why government is involved in education in the first place. Even conservatives aren’t asking that question.
They’ll be no joy in unionville tonite!
God save the children.
The bill allows families with children zoned to failing schools to receive tax credits to help pay for attendance at private schools or other public schools. It authorizes donation-funded scholarships for students zoned to failing schools whose families meet income requirements. It allows local school systems to seek waivers from some state policies.
Good. Privatize everything from the DOE down to one room schoolhouses.
My neighbors send their boy to this school in Indianapolis. Many signs in the neighborhood promoting the school. I am not sure if it is public or public supported.
the second private schools accept those dollars the leftists will force them to use the same currculum as publik skoolz
My daughter-in-law teaches in a private school, she said that they were not too thrilled with the voucher program. It depended on if the state then would have a say in how you ran your school. She teaches in a catholic school.
Look for teachers’ unions and MSM to go totally apeshit in Indiana 5...4...3...2...1...
This may be good, but
Unfortunately Indiana has proven recently that it does not believe in the most basic protections in the constitution.
“I hope one of the arguments was the current public shool monopoly is failing to actually educate our children”
I think that this is what most people think of when the hear about vouchers.
Another argument that is rarely made and that will probably be a driving force towards moving states to a voucher system is cost.
If it costs a state an average of 10K per year to educate a student, a 5K voucher will net the state a 5K surplus.
If enough students leave the public system, there will be fewer teachers and administrators, fewer facilities, fewer buses, etc., which will lead to even more savings.
As states continue to struggle to meet their budget needs, the cost factor may end up being more important than the quality of education, which is a major talking point for many states but doesn’t seem to be a concern otherwise.
