Why the AU opposes school vouchers

July 10, 2013

Education by DVD?  That’s what vouchers get you, when you take taxpayer money from the public schools and give it to private religious schools that prefer creationism over evolution.  When your tax money is being used with no accountability, and schools are being cleared of any violations of the rules by the fact that they don’t keep sufficient records to determine if they are meeting standards, something is wrong.

In fact, the audits revealed that the afore-mentioned standard “could not be completed for forty-nine of the fifty-one private schools reviewed.” One audit is littered with the following statement, concerning the records of dozens of voucher schools: “We were unable to perform the procedures because the school did not have a separate checking account or other procedures to account for scholarship expenditures separate from other expenditures.”
