Going by the track record of P.O. editorials on a range of topics, Thomas, any future opining will be Liberal propaganda. You may count on op-ed pieces slanted to support the editorial position the P.O. set out in Wednesday's paper. The P.O. will continue to be a propaganda purveyor for the Left. You can take that to the bank, Thomas. Leopards don't change their spots.

Yes it take Quantum shift in thinking for them. Solid research and well-reasoned interpretation is not the hallmark of their op-ed page.

I give the author of this LTE credit. Unlike the above two posters, he knows the difference between a news story and an opinion piece.

The bill before the state now would designate one particular version of a voucher program.

I believe this was reported. Poorer families would have the option of moving their children out of under performing schools through vouchers.

From there, there are two sides who make their arguments on the effects to the students & the school system.

Both sides have had their view points stated in earlier LTEs.

Good luck with unbiased. The only unbiased information is in the proposal itself assuming it is written precisely.

Experts abound on both sides.

one question: if I don't like the school my children go to that is 5 miles away, and instead choose a school 25 miles away, how is my child getting to and from school? And who pays for the transportation?(Okay, that's two questions.)

Both of the first two posts dealt with OPINION expressed by the P.O., primarily the Leftist Major. Both made clear they know the difference between op-ed and hard news. So, here you are distorting and lying again as the Liberal puke troll who haunts Topix daily.

Under current rules, the public schools must transport the private school children if they transport the children attending the public schools. But that aside, where are you ever able to get unbias information. Every writer spins the information and data to suit their need.

The rule for transporting is limited to 10 miles beyond your district's border to another school. Beyond that- no transportation provided.
