I think we dont bring back vouchers because we dont need the goverments help. What about the children in public schools? They are tearing us apart. Democrats are agaist it, an so am I.

The govt. and you Democrats are what has screwed up public education. Vouchers give us an option. It's my money anyway.

It cost the taxpayers on average 15K to educate a public school student in the US. The average cost for a private school student in the US-4K.We spend the most dollars in the world on the Public SChool system and we are near the bottom in global education. Incredibly, most of our tax dollars never even go to the classroom where it is needed the most in the public schools. Let me send my tax dollars to where my kids go-PRIVATE SCHOOL!
