    That's one christian school. If you don't like what they teach, then don't send your kids there. That's the beauty of private schools: you can escape the incompetent ones.

    Statistics show that private schools do a better job than government schools.

    End of story.

    You should not be able to use anyone elses tax dollars to send your child to a religious school.
    Vouchers should only give you what YOU paid in school taxes, not someones elses school tax money as well. To use someone elses school tax money for that is a violation of the US constitution.

    As soon as tax dollars aren't used to pay for abortions you'll be right.

    If public schools can teach that global warming is real, religious schools can teach that Nessie is real. After all, thousands of people say they've seen Nessie. And they weren't paid to say it. We pay scientists to say global warming is real.

    Tax dollars are used to pay for abortions?
    Link please.

    In any case an abortion is not a religious rite or process so you are just farting in the wind.

    The appropriate way to handle the school system is for each state to determine the cost of what it takes to educate one child. Parents should then be able to choose which school they want their child to go to and the money should follow that child to that school. This will breed competition among the schools because they'll want the money and will therefore start innovating ways of better educating children in order to attract them to that school. This system is already in use in a few countries in Europe and has worked out well.
