Lying politicians tell us that vouchers are for rescuing students from schools that don’t meet state and federal accountability standards.

For the sake of argument, let’s say that I accept that as a valid reason. I don’t, but play along.

If I’m saving the student from the school that doesn’t meet state and federal accountability standards, then it is only logical that the voucher can only be used at schools that meet state and federal accountability standards.  That way I have solved the problem and rescued the child.

However, private schools also do not meet state and federal accountability standards. Fact. Private schools are exempt from the accountability standards that all public schools are required to meet. How inconvenient.

Which means that based on “RESCUE” logic, vouchers can only be used at PUBLIC schools meeting state and federal minimum standards.

Oops, that a problem. 

Unless rescuing poor public school children isn’t my real agenda.

Think. Work. Achieve.
