Research once again shows school choice is working!

I support public schools and think we should be funding them. It’s easy for “ choice”schools to claim success when they don’t have to take the children who are more difficult to educate.
Because most of voucher users are already the rich and would already be headed to colleges. And handicapped and troubled kids are sent back to the public schools
they have booted out the "problem kids" and sent them back to the public schools who's funding has been cut because of the vouchers. When my kids were young you paid for the other schools out of your own pockets. there was no hand outs to pay for the "better" schools. And also paid taxes for schools too, and most getting the vouchers can afford to pay for the private schools. I stopped when I couldn't afford it any more and feel the kids got a better education out of going to public schools which offered more choices....
