  • School Vouchers Promote Competition

    When a school is not performing well and students leave utilizing their vouchers, it creates competition. Competition is what has always made America great. If those under-performing schools are wanting to get students back they will work harder and do more to make their school great. That will give incentive for more students to go where they will get the best education. Meanwhile, parents will have the means to support putting their child in the best school they can. They are not forced to have their child in a school that is sub-par. Competition is always good for productivity.

  • Every Kid Deserves Good Schooling

    If a kid wants to go to a private school, they should be able to get the same amount of money as their peers in public schools. Private schools produce, on average, better students. The school that is making better adults should be able to receive the same amount of money as the public school system.

  • If people want to go to a better school, they should be able to.

    Everyone has an equal opportunity to go to a private or public school, so the better school should not be punished for getting the better kids. There are things that public schools could do to attract more kids, but they need to push for those things. Vouchers work as "scholarships" therefore, if you want a better education you should be able to go where ever you want to.

  • Vouchers can give the next generation a better start!

    The vouchers help the school systems in two ways; creates competition, and private school families don't have to pay for both. First, with competition, the public schools will get up from where their sitting, and do a better job then just pouring political opinions into the minds of our young ones. Second, with the vouchers, private school families don't have to pay for both public and private schools to get a good education for their children, so the public school isn't hording money from every person, only the people who send their children to the school, making it a lot better for other families.

  • Citizens without children cannot withdraw their tax money from schools, why should we let parents?

    This would create an a la carte form of funding government could never work. No one would ever consider letting me withdraw my tax dollars from the military. Why allow this? Everyone benefits from public education. Furthermore, private schools have never been able to compete with public schools. It is a common assumption that they can. So if the trend is to take money out of failing schools it makes no sense to invest in private education. Lastly, we should not use public money to invest in private enterprises.

  • Violates the US Constitution

    The First Amendment of the US Constitution, which houses the Establishment Clause, clearly states that church and state must not be connected or be affiliated in any way what so ever. The Sixth Section of the Indiana State Constitution states almost the same thing. This is why vouchers are bad, because they violate our rights made by our founding fathers.

  • Education Vouchers: America's way of saying we have given up on our education system

    The public education system in the United States clearly needs some help, yet many politicians are ignoring this systems cry. Their answer is to just abandon public education all together. Every child in this nation deserves an education, and every single public school in this country should be able to provide that. Don't stop believing, never give up is what we teach our children, so lets live by this motto ourselves.

  • American citizens should not have to pay for students to attend a private school.

    The public has already paid to build the schools, and should not be required to pay for an education at a private school. If this is allowed, public schools could sit empty or partially full, while wasting tax payers' money. The voucher program also subverts separation of church and state, because many private schools are run by churches.

  • Education vouchers are not a good public policy, because they will only help a handful of students, and they will not be fair and equal.

    I think that the education of our children should be the main goal of any public policy, because the children are the future of our country. Education should be fair and equal for all children living in the United States, but it has come a long way from that. If the country decided to give school vouchers to children, it is certain that the underprivileged students would be the ones left behind. Politicians may state that the policy would help underprivileged children, and it may help a few, but it would make it worse for most of them. I live in Pennsylvania and former Governor Tom Ridge purposed school vouchers that would give vouchers to any parent who makes under $100,000. The problem was that the voucher was only for a couple of thousand dollars, and not enough to pay for a year's worth of schooling at a good school. I think that school vouchers sound like a way for the rich families in America to send their children to good schools, without paying for it.

  • No, because education vouchers undermine the public school system.

    Education vouchers are often touted as being an answer to failing inner-city school systems. Parents would be able to use vouchers to send their children to private or charter schools. The problem with a voucher program is that it costs much more than the public school system. For this reason, voucher programs are usually small and involve a fraction of the students enrolled in public education. This leads to a smaller number of students in the public school system, but it also removes dollars from the public school system, damaging the quality of buildings and staff. Many students are unable to go anywhere else but the public schools and, thus, suffer as a result of not spending those dollars to improve the public school system, as a whole.

  • Education vouchers are not good policy, because they hurt people who need public education the most.

    Education vouchers are good in theory but, like most things, the devil is in the details. It is unlikely that the vouchers will cover the cost of tuition at "elite" level private schools, meaning that low-income families will be unable to take their children out of public schools. These families will receive the same education in a school district stripped of its resources. These children rely on schools as a means for them to pull themselves out of the difficult situation that they were born into. This is not something that should be taken away from families that need it.

  • Education vouchers are not good public policy since they often cater to fringe educational groups.

    Our publicly funded education system relies on the principle of doing the greatest good for the most. Our public education system also is open to all persons no matter their race, creed, or physical abilities. By opening up our system to education vouchers we are privatizing a public institution. A direct result of this would be fewer educational opportunities if special interest groups were allowed to use federal funds.

  • Education vouchers are bad public policy, because it forces taxpayers to subsidize causes that shouldn't be funded by government money, like parochial schools.

    There is a clear wall of separation between church and state in our society. Education vouchers would give government money to schools that are religious in nature. Tax dollars should never go to fund religious schools. So creating a system that would allow such a thing is bad public policy.

  • There is no justification, apart from special education needs, for giving an incentive to private education.

    Taxpayer dollars are already given for the express purpose of funding public schools. School or education vouchers take away resources from schools and encourage parents to put their children in private schools. According to Public Agenda for Citizens, surveys show that three quarters of parents polled do not favor taking money from failing schools, which school vouchers would certainly do.
