  • School Vouchers  ( 46 items )
    Vouchers for private, religious schools - whether called "school choice" or "opportunity scholarships," implemented broadly or in select areas - amount to government support of religion. By funding pervasively religious institutions, vouchers promote religion and violate the consciences of those taxpayers who disagree with religious teachings of the schools. Vouchers are bad for the schools, too - by receiving government money they become slaves to government regulation rather than independent voices of religious principles and are open to excessive government entanglement with religion.
