Tom, If public school were a viable alternative to educate our poor, I would agree. There are now second and third generations of inner-city poor who have been stuck in ineffectual and impotent public schools who can't prepare kids for a job, let alone life. The rich and affluent can escape this dreadful circumstance. This it seems to me is the essence of "Progressive" and "Liberal" thought - let the have-nots live like the haves - but the teachers unions are so powerful and are so dead set against this, there's no room for even consideration on the left. Rick --------original message---------- The sad part is that the voucher system is such a blatant example of "But I don't get anything from the government. I want some money too!"
