The First Truth About Vouchers: They are really about tax breaks and subsidies for the affluent.
Who attends private schools now? Overwhelmingly, the children of the upper middle class and the affluent. Solely, due to their own personal choice, these people pay both private school tuition and public school taxes. If their public school taxes are diverted back to them as a voucher that can be used to reduce the cost of private school tuition, that is the same as giving these upper middle class and affluent families a tax subsidy.
Meaning that the only choice that a school voucher represents is the political choice to disguise a tax cut for those who need it the least.
