Vouchers could help school system

I found it interesting that your editorial board had taken a stance against school vouchers, which is the ability of parents to choose the direction of their child’s education. In Lake Wales, we have a great example of concerned citizens implementing a different option of education. It seems to me, that for the most part the only people that object to vouchers would be teacher unions and those that support the goals of the teacher unions. It truly is not about the kids, but money and power.

It didn’t take me long to google resource material supporting voucher programs! Recently the new mayor of New York has taken considerable heat for working against voucher schools in the city, that help those that don’t have the resources to send their children to private schools. Our education system, at times, seems bogged down in the process of maintaining itself rather than teaching kids! When parents make informed choices concerning the welfare of their children, we all benefit.
