http://www.cnn.com/2004/EDUCATION/09/01/dc.school.vouchers.ap/index.html "The Bush administration views vouchers as a way to empower parents and free students from struggling schools. Bush has proposed another $50 million for vouchers initiatives next year. Critics, including Democratic presidential contender John Kerry, say vouchers strip money from public schools and funnel it to private schools that face little accountability." Not sure how I feel about this one. It seems to me that abandoning the Public school system does nothing to improve it for the kids still stuck in it, but then again, if I had a kid and qualified for a voucher I think I'd use it.
