@AnglRdr....no private and religious is not the same thing...there are private non denominational schools and then there are religious schools...catholic schools, christian schools...
ummm..catholicism is quite different than baptist which is different than episcopalian? We're in the south so shouldn't you know at least this???
Oh my, you make no sense and please go read on some issues until you debate....
I've covered private, religious and charter...so yeah I did. If you wish to have a question resolved you should come out and directly ask it because your not "pointing anything out" by the above statements.
That is what these comment sections are for..often people voice their opinons in a more poignant, more direct manner that isn't done so in a normal every day life or face to face making it easier for one to show their point of view.
C'mon AnglRdr...I know you have some brain cells in there!...school vouchers also known as "education tax credits" also cover relgious schools
Most Charter schools do not have tuiton...hence why they are done by a lottery system
@ AnglRdr...not when voucher programs are cut..then it's not available for people who can't afford it...which was my point.
Need more? http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1236042860…
@Min...your right! It's so much better to be like Obama and countless other democratic senators (Al gore, Dick Durben, Mario Cuomo), mayors, etc and shoot down school vouchers that allow inner city kids to have choice and strengthen the teachers union while sending their own children to private schools!
@Ask01...agreed...for democrats especially given the fact that they are the loudest champions of the public school system and Republicans believe in school choice and reforming the system.
@d observer...because if Michelle Rhee sends her children to the charter schools...IT TAKES THE PLACE OF A CHILD WHO CAN'T AFFORD TO GO TO A PRIVATE SCHOOL AND THE FAILING PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE THEIR ONLY OPTION. The whole point of charter schools folks is REFORM...and part of that reform is things like...smaller classes...smaller teacher to student ratio. Also, many charter schools operate on a lottery system. In big cities, they can be extremely competitive. See the movie, "Waiting for superman"
Sooo Michelle sending her kids to that school is actually harmful to the kids that she's trying to help.
