2. Currently it is illegal for public schools to discriminate based on race, religion etc., although there still is much de facto segregation. Vouchers will enable even more middle class white families to afford private schools, with some of those schools having discriminatory admission policies. This will leave the poor, especially poor minorities, stuck with even more under-funded schools than we have today.
3. There are many good reasons why racial, religious etc discrimination is illegal. Everyone has a right to be free from illegal discrimination by government, larger businesses and business establishments open to the public. Vouchers are a scheme to bypass those prohibitions on discrimination for the benefit of whites, Christians and more prosperous families.
4. The law is unclear and unsettled (see post#501), but it is likely that private schools will be able to continue their discriminatory policies even if they accept vouchers.
