The claimed object of private school vouchers is to break up the failing policies in public education (elementary and secondary), specifically targeting the inner-city children. One should look at what other states have proposed to see how many variables could be realized. Here’s one I found today:

*The Democrats and Republicans are falling all over themselves claiming to be the ones who control it best. When the Dept of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) was established in 1953, American students ranked #1 in the world in the fields of math & science.

Even if the Dept. of Ed. was constitutional, which it is not, it should still be eliminated for doing such a terrible job!
