Washington says that the Voucher program degrades the public school system... Well, my dear congressmen and Senators, your president did just that when he chose to send his girls to a prestigious private school. We all should be given "equal" opportunity. I would love to send my children to such a school but my husband, a soldier in the US army) doesn't make enough money for that. And with his frequest deployments I found myself spending more money in childcare than it was worth to work so I have opted to work part time when he is home.
