I don't think that the GOP in general 'want' to particularly teach our kids any specific religion or any religion at all. Just to allow the right/freedom to do so.<quoted text>
Right. The GOP wants to teach children the Christian creation story in public school science classes. The Dems go with what this nation was founded upon.
I personally have no problem with the voucher system. IF someone is paying 'school taxes' but NOT sending their kids to PS321 but home schooling or a Montessori school, why should not get a voucher/re-imbursement of some sort?
After all, we all pay school supporting taxes in some way all of our working or home owning lives whether we have zero kids or 10 kids & AFTER the kids are grown & paying school taxes themselves.
I paid school taxes for 15yrs B4 having any kids & am still paying school taxes 5yrs after my youngest left 2ndary schools.
I will likely be paying some sort of tax all of my life. That's OK with me.
IF public schools have some sort of competition, there may be improvement in the quality of our declining education system. It would be a win-win scenerio for all of society, the families, the employers (national & international), reduce crime & hunger & more.
