    i completely support the voucher system for any private school religious or non-religious... i even think it should be extended to healthcare too.

    Specific religious private schools that included religious education/indoctrination. (please specify and why object to one religious school and not another)

    Religious private school that will only use tax dollars for secular education. Meaning they promised not to use tax payer dollars for any religious education or indoctrination.They either charged the parents for the religious education/indoctrination, use private donations to fund religious education/indoctrination or or a combination of the two or use volunteers to do the religious teaching/indoctrinating.

    Any religious private school whose education is secular.(in other words they may be a school ran by a religious organization but they have no religious education/indoctrination)

    Non-religious private schools.

    I support school vouchers regardless of the type of school.It should be the parent's choice what type of private school they want to use the vouchers for.

    I do not support school voucher at all regardless of the private school.





    I support vouchers to private schools and I think it should be the parent's choice regardless if they want to send their child to a atheist,Christian,Jewish, Muslim, Catholic or what ever private school.
    I support vouchers for any grade school/high school a parent would like to send their children to. Our public schools are failing. Time to get rid of the monopoly.

    I propose the change in the system altogether, make any child be able to attend a private school and make all public schools charter schools.

    So everyone has a choice to go anywhere

    Public schools aren't a monopoly...because private schools exist.

    Public schools aren't failing...SOME public schools are failing. Some public schools also do well...in wealthy neighborhoods.

    If I had never seen a regular public school that educated its students well, I would agree with you. But I have, so I can't see the reason in abandoning a system that works in some districts. Also, I have seen private schools and charter schools fail - so it seems to me that the type of school isn't the real problem.

    Right, I misspoke re monopoly. There would be many more -- and more affordable -- if vouchers were available. And in schools in those poor neighborhoods you reference? Maybe private schools would step away from a one-size-fits-all mentality and turn out kids who could actually read, write and speak proper English. AND be trained to do something after high school other than run drugs.

    Private schools AND public schools have turned out educated kids from poor neighborhoods. Examples of both exist, which is why there is no reason to scrap public education.

    Just because it works in some places doesn't make successful. And off course private and charter schools fail... it's a business and businesses fail, but a private a charter school has 10X more motivation to do well and stay in business, because they are reliant on the customer bass. The only reason charter/private schools fail today is because the public school system still exists. And it's okay for a private/charter school to fail, it's actually a good thing, because you have weeded out the bad school/business that has the bad policies, and the better schools will survive. Since people will have a choice you can transfer to a school you think is better if a private or charter school is crap.

    It's a very bad thing for a public school to fail... but a good thing for private/charter school to fail.

    Re: What kinds of private schools would you support vouchers for?

    I oppose voucher programs for the reasons already mentioned in this thread. Public money should be kept for public schools, and not used for private schools.
