"So, just because a few a willing, we should take that choice away from them? "
No one is taking it away from them. If they can't afford both homeschooling and taxes, then they should just send their kids to public school. If they have the money, then good for them. I understand the point of the vouchers, but the problem with using them in areas where the public schools suck is that it will only make the public schools worse with no chance of getting better. You`re basically damning children because their parents are poor.

@MeGrendel "Strange, all of those were present at the private school I sent my daughter to(although, the bullies were weeded out pretty quick...see, we had a code of conduct that was actually ENFORCED...can't have that in a public school)."
Just the opposite where I live. In our public schools we have a 1 strike policy with regards to drugs and pretty strict policies when it comes to bullying. However, in the private schools, you can get away with a lot more. (If you are caught with drugs on campus, one or two times, you get let off with a warning.)

SmagBoy1-"But that's what vouchers are"
My state currently does not use them. But I think they`re a great idea.
SmagBoy1-"it completely undermines the public school system."
No, it completely undermines the public schools that are doing a horrible job.
Do you want to be forced to pay for a product that doesn`t work?
eddy666-" it is only feasible for a few Americans."
So, just because a few a willing, we should take that choice away from them?
eddy666-"to hide them from atheism, homosexuality, black people, and bullies."
Strange, all of those were present at the private school I sent my daughter to(although, the bullies were weeded out pretty quick...see, we had a code of conduct that was actually ENFORCED...can`t have that in a public school).
