Warning from Indiana on vouchers

The next time you hear we need vouchers (or corporate tax credit “scholarships”) to give choice to poor children, think of this warning from Indiana. “Students using vouchers to attend private schools represent less than 2 percent of Indiana’s K-12 students, yet the legislature concentrates on this small group at the expense of the vast majority of public school students. It is as if our policy makers have given up on public education in favor of private education, but such a strategy will never be able to address the needs of the public school students.
What the report indicates is that we are now funding two separate systems of education with tax dollars – one public, one private.” http://www.indystar.com/article/20140131/OPINION/301310056/Vouchers-distraction-from-public-education-needs.
