Vouchers: A Panacea?
Neal Boortz, famed Atlanta libertarian talk show
host, commented on something that has the potential to
revolutionize the public education system:
In Georgia the governor is considering a plan whereby the state could help fund some community social service projects initiated by churches. The truth here is that these private churches do a better job of delivering many of these social services than government does. Can you guess who is stepping up to loudly protest the idea? Well, that would be the Georgia Association of Educators, our wonderful teacher's union. One union spokesman said “It would open a floodgate to vouchers and that is our primary objection to this bill.” Vouchers! Union government teachers go to sleep at night worrying about vouchers. They wake up to nightmares about vouchers. They arise in the morning shivering in a cold sweat brought on by thoughts of vouchers. They see vouchers in every dark corner and under every
rock. It seems at times that their entire life is occupied by a focus on keeping that floodgate to vouchers from ever opening.
…any thoughts on the subject?
