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 only in communities with perennially low performance public schools. Reconstituting low performance public schools with quality programs, quality personnel, and quality student-data driven performance initiatives is a must.
Yes, but only under a system where public school funding is not associated with the number of students attending the school, and when attendance becomes too low, a system of school district mergers should be implemented to ensure public school students are not allocated less money. Vouchers should not be used for non-religious private schools
