With graduation on the horizon, David Boone knows better things are coming his way.<quoted text>
So you're okay with taxpayer public education as long as the public schools remain ineffective, secularist and dumb down our children.
You just don't like taxpayers paying for public education when it involves a parent's right to choose the school of their choice.

In the fall, the 18-year-old will head to Massachusetts to attend Harvard University. But for Boone, life hasn't always been easy.
The Ohio native had a rough upbringing in Cleveland, but he didn't let his past determine his future.
Boone blogged about his admissions experience for The Huffington Post, in which he recounted parts of his personal life, including encounters with gangs and temporary homelessness.
At age 14, his home was destroyed by gang members who were upset the teen wouldn't join them. Boone and his siblings had to split up and take shelter wherever they could, because their mother couldn't afford a new house. On some nights, the teen had no choice but to sleep on park benches.
