I was saddened to read of the actions of the Macon County School Board’s decision to become a party in opposition to School Vouchers. Why should the government hold almost total domination over our children’s education? Why should money taken from the taxpayers for education not follow the student?
Why should parents have to constantly defend their right to say how their children are educated? Why should the public schools not have to compete for students? If they do a better job of educating children than other institutions, they need not fear of becoming irrelevant. Also, properly structured, why can’t teachers’ benefits and retirement follow them as well wherever they choose to teach? Yes, freedom is fast slipping away in America.
