School Vouchers now get it on the Ballot and here’s why!
Let say for argument sake every child get 10,000. Ok now you have a tax credit which you can direct were your dollars supporting education will go. Be it Bennet or Holly Grove or some other school eventually this process will weed out the bad schools and benefit the ones that get results. Seems logical to me. Allow the market to drive quality education. This is needed now more then ever as we see an ever expanding amount of tax dollars being flushed down the education toilet. A voucher system will foster and reward schools that have it together and will allow for expansion of the quality schools to either branch out with franchises or build a bigger facility to accommodate the demand. It will also attract a solid group of educators not the slacker tenured dead wood and eliminate the needless BURACRACY. Here lies the rub it will take a momentous movement to get this started but it is a simple solution to a growing problem. It is pretty obvious that the current system is a financial disaster and that 85 % of the public school systems do not foster a quality education. Special “public” schools can be set up for the ones who choose to disturb the environment call it a pre school for prison. Teach shop and skill type subjects and forget trying to hold their attention in a classroom.

Get rid of public education. It's a taxpayers nightmare.
And being single, never going to have kids. My parents of 80 years over paid for my education by 3 times easy. Single People with no kids owe not a penny to the Public wasteducation system.

on a positive note. when do the speed cameras go off in salisbury? i believe barkley said the day after school ends, for the summer.
and only in salisbury. every other place, like fruitland remain on.
check this if you could.
