SCHOOL: Pay your own way

Print Article

It never ceases to amaze me why the same people who through my tax dollars want me to pay for their educational choice, via PYP and IB, but do not want to pay for teaching Creation Science, my educational choice for my kids. They say those of us who want our kids taught Creation Science can send them to a private religious school.

I am reasonably sure there are some private schools that teach PYP and IB. If not, there is always the choice of home schooling.

If the supporters of PYP and IB schools of choice truly wanted education choice they would support an educational voucher program. Then all parents would have equal opportunity to choose where and how they want to educate their children. They could decide whether to send their kids to public, private secular, religious, charter, or they could even home school them.

This plan should put an end to people forcing their educational philosophy on their neighbors’ kids.
