Trump and DeVos Hatch a Deceptive Scheme to Push School Vouchers @alternet
Well… contrary to the subheading, I think they will fool some people into thinking that this is something different than a voucher plan in tax-shelter clothing… and the real shame is that the primary beneficiaries will be those who are choosing to use their own funds to provide a religiously based eduction for their children and will now have a portion of their tuition covered by unwitting taxpayers.
And based on SB 610 it looks like this is going to happen…
They aren’t going to fool anyone with their plan. Since President Donald Trump picked Betsy DeVos to be his new Education secretary, there’s been lots of talk in the media that his administration, with his secretary out front, will push for vouchers so parents can withdraw their children from public schools and get money to pay for tuition at private schools, even religious ones.Others scoff at this notion, arguing it will prove too difficult to get a voucher program through Congress.
