A school voucher is a certificate of government funding that students can use to pay for the school of their choice. Students are given the vouchers and can use them to pay for non-public school systems including private schools, home schools and charter schools Proponents argue that the vouchers will create a better education system by promoting competition between schools. Opponents argue that the voucher system removes funds from public schools and redirects it toward private institutions.
Yes, but I would rather privatize all education
The government wastes money on all programs and agencies. They have no incentive to streamline, after all it is just OUR money. Private companies want to spend as little as possible to grow profits, so they have an incentive, and if they don't (but they will) at least it's their money to spend.
yes, but have entry exam and qualifications for all students and provide equal advantages for students of all backgrounds there has to be diversity in every way for Americans to learn to function together as a society and part of it begins in the school system don't put students at a disadvantage by surrounding them with only one demographic
No, the government should not be involved.
While I agree that government shouldn't be involved in education we must consider the only alternative -- funding indoctrinating public schools designed to enslave ruthlessly and nefariously future generations and create an Orwellian despotism inescapable but by war. By funding private schools which will be in competition with one another, schools will become better and better whereas government monopolization of the education system has no competitive incentives for greatness. Our kids deserve better. WHile I would like a 100% privatization of all education with NO government intervention whatsoever if I had to choose between our current system and a voucher system I should not hesitate to prefer the latter. You shouldn't either.
depends- there are private schools AND private alternative schools (New Hope Academy).
when i was granted the opportunity to go to this private alternative school, it changed my entire life. I felt proud. i felt capable. understand. my GPA raised from a 2.4 to a 3.8 .. i think the therapeutic environment is important for placing certain students
