Re: [art_education] What is your opinion?
- By subsidizing private schools through a voucher program or any other gov't.
funding devise, we negate what makes private schools unique. Private schools
are permitted to control their student body through admissions and expulsion
procedures because they are non-gov't. funded. Private schools don't always
teach culturally or economically disadvantaged children; they don't always
teach learning disabled children; they don't always teach emotionally
disturbed children. They don't teach everybody because they are not public
A voucher system would essentially eliminate the differences between public
and private schools, and American parents would lose the option of "scraping
together" the tuition fees for an alternative to public education.
