Question by Passiondale: Federal Funds should not go to Private school vouchers, disagree or agree?
I personally don’t think a dime of our money should go to private schools. They are as they are, private.
People like to compare the results of private to public and since private schools generally achieve higher results here in America, they often forget a few facts.
Private and Public schools have TOTALLY different environments. Private schools have less disciplinary issues, and less students than Public schools. And because of less students, and different school schedules compared to public schools, private schools can generally teach at a desirable rate to the students — where as in public schools that luxury isn’t there. They have many students, many classes and have to get the lessons curriculum completed on a certain date, and can’t take the time to slow down.
Another thing compare other countries public schools to ours. What’s the difference? American public schools lag behind other industrialized nations public schools. The reason why is simple. We go to school less, we don’t challenge our students, bad legislation like No Child Left Behind act which basically threw special needs kids in a regular class room — and it cost billions and proven ineffective. Lets not forget because our tax dollars aren’t going where they’re suppose to and schools often pass students even when they failed because its cheaper.
20% of India’s students are Honors students, and that 20% is more than ALL the kids in the United States. South Korean and Japan have the BRIGHTEST kids in the entire world. Learning Geometry, trig, and many advanced courses before our kids learn here in America. France, UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway, and many others all excel past our public schools with their own.
I disagree with MY tax dollars going to vouchers to help parents put their kids in private schools. It would cause our public school systems to get less money, and the kids left in these schools will have less opportunities. Some schools may have to close down if to many decided to send their kids into private schools, and where will the lower income families put their children? Private schools are expensive these families couldn’t pay for it. If our tax dollars go to pay off thousands and thousands of vouchers, we’d ultimately be spending more on private schools.
I honestly see this as an attempt to get our kids in a religious teaching environment. More and more people are becoming secular and the best way to repopulate the next generations of church goers is to target our children.
Our constitution doesn’t protect our children in private schools as they do in public schools.
The folks supporting the vouching system are the same people against Public health care because it will “Limit” our options. These same exact people will ultimately limit our education options, its ironic.
John we may have different stances, but ultimately its the same.
I just don’t want my money going to help parents put their kids in private schools.
Andy — The constitution protects our kids from religious teachings in public schools. It does not apply to private schools. Which is exactly why our tax dollars shouldn’t go to fund something that would be unconstitutional in a public school.
I don’t want a dime of my money going to fund something that is against the constitution.
