Tax the churches if they want to get so involved in politics. Tax their properties and busineses where they hide under their tax exempt status!

I gather from the comments that you are only in favor of rich people having a choice on where to send their children to school and giving them a real chance at life?

It's all about the kids huh?

If I don't think that the public schools are getting the job done, why can't I use the money that would have been spent to educate my kids in the public cesspools towards the tuition I spend to put my kids into a quality private education?

Why is the government providing something that the private sector can provide with better quality at lower cost?

Maybe collecting taxes is tricky business since most are busy sending donations to GOP canidates like our Gov and crew.

Competition encourages innovation, efficiency and lower cost. I applaud Kasich for supporting educational choices for families since one sized education does not work for all.

Hereis why. The cost to educate one child is MORE than the average taxpayer pays in taxes to their schools. So the balance of your child's voucher is paid by the other taxpayers in your community. Those taxpayers have voted to support the local public school, not your choice of school. If you want to choose an alternative, then you need to pay for it on your own. We all pay to support our entire community, not just for our kids. MOst vouchers will go to kids already enrolled in parochial schools. Most kids are in those schools are there for religious reasons. That choice should not be tax supported. Also, if a couple kids leave the public school and that state money follows them, the local public school still needs to keep paying for the same number of teachers. They still need to heat and light the same number of buildings. So they are at a financial disadvantage.

We would have went if we could have gotten a hall pass like we did to go to the Governors mansion to drink and do drugs when Strickland was there.
Oh the good old days.
Remember?
Send us money at Lucasville Ohio Church people.
Gosh we will even go to your church if you pay us!
