    I wonder if she will still think vouchers for religious schools are the correct route when they are used for Muslim, Buddhist, Scientology, and Jewish schools. Also, why does she want to spend money on private schools when so many public schools need it much more. Most who send their children to private schools are very rich and can afford to pay for them without taxpayer's money.

    Great points about vouchers and their history, except that it misses the Chilean example, which is a universal voucher scheme instituted in the 1980's. It led to the same types of segregation explained here and should be Exhibit A about why the U.S. should not pursue a national voucher strategy.

    I'm shocked at the lack of knowledge she has about education. She has no qualifications other the buying her way in. Putting her in charge of the Dept. of Education would be like putting a custodian in charge of the CIA.

    It is evident that you have no idea what you are talking about and have made no effort to educate yourself on problems within the failing schools. It is not the staff or teachers at schools that are failing children. The parents and community of these schools are failing the children. The parents do not raise their children with any value of education and are not educated themselves. They do not help their children with homework or even ask if their children have homework. They don't read with their children or do any of the things required for their children to be successful. That is the problem with failing schools. We need to begin the put money into educating women from the time they are pregnant of their duty to help their children be successful in school.
