While the agendas of some of the teacher's unions clearly focused on other things besides what was best for the kids, and while the Dept. of Education was further weakening education through mandating politically correct programs that had nothing to do with the 3 R's, many non-public schools were making a name for themselves by doing what the 'government' schools had done in the past before the unions and the PC BS.

I understand public-school teachers worrying about reduced money coming in, but compelling the State to help fund schools that not only could be doing better with what they have but may even be teaching the children of some moralistic parents things they oppose is wrong. Let the teachers pressure the people who force them to deal with things like skewed history; racial bias and putting so much effort into students who won't try meeting standards in favor of not fully encouraging talented students to do their best. These problems are not 'across-the-board', but are there and are large enough to harm the entire public school system.

I for one have no children in any school, yet more then half of my property taxes go to the public school system here. This means I have and will continue to help fund these schools while getting nothing out of that deal. And when the public schools hold out their hands for more money, then the city assessor's office just raises the value of my property (which is roughly 20 thousand more then I could get for it today). So anything that would either help relieve my tax burden or force the public schools to improve would be something I expect. The threat of many students leaving public schools in a quest to find better education is one of these motivations.

The entire school voucher program is a SCAM ORIGINALLY STARTED BY HOLLYWEIRDOS who want to send their troublemaker/drug addict/spoiled rotten kids to private schools BUT DO NOT CARE ENOUGH ABOUT THEIR KIDS TO ACTUALLY PAY FOR IT (because it cuts into the money they -adult Hllyweirdos-use for THEIR OWN ILLEGAL DRUG PURCHASES AND MONEY THEY USE FOR PROSTITUTES AND MOLESTING CHILDREN)!!!
It seems that their crimnal kids get into trouble at school and school officials then offer to cover up, in exchange for LARGE CASH DONATIONS! This makes celebrities ANGRY, as they are used to committing any criminal act they want, so they WAANT TO STEAL MONEY FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!! Thesae rich Hollyweirdos feel "THE HE11 WITH THE AVERAGE PEOPLES KIDS"!!
