    are simply another method designed to kill public education.  They are used to appeal to parents of children in poorer performing school districts. But what they do in reality is drive down funding for all public schools bu removing revenue from them.  If a parent wants to improve public schools, they must get involved.  

    I am a product of public schools and believe that public schools are one of the best ways to achieve equal opportunities in life for all children.  I want our public schools to have the best revenue stream possible to successfully educate our children.  Therefore, as a taxpayer, I expect that my school tax dollars to be spent on public schools, not to enhance the bottom line of a private, for profit school.  Conversely, if a parent wants to send his or her child to a private school, then that parent should be prepared to pay for it, not expect public tax dollars to do so.

    More tax cuts would be gluttony in a time of starvation. That is not America. That is a nation about to be plundered, and a people laid to waste. - Charles Blow
