Pray For Vouchers

In discussing the benefits of school vouchers, I think Star Parker nailed the reasons why there is such antagonism towards school choice by many people, largely from the Left. She says one reason is good old special interests. The school unions see their empire slipping away with alternatives to their failed monopoly.

The other is "an elitism that produces an overarching hostility to religion and religious schools. This hostility is so profound that given the option of a better educated child who is the product of a parochial school, these folks prefer mediocrity or even failure. "

I know the latter is true. I was for many years a member of that crowd. I believed that religion is corruptive and the basis for all that has historically been wrong with the world. It is a common thread within the Jewish community and why they tend to support secular policies of the liberal camp. Without getting into who did what to whom throughout history, we are in a world where the missing lessons of the faiths, as Dennis Prager has written, the Judeo-Christian values, are rendering society groundless.

Even if a child were to learn a biblical passage or two, is that not a fair trade off in exchange for the educational opportunity currently lacking in our public schools?
