For political reasons many of our politicians promote and support the voucher systems that allow for people to take their children to private schools. Unfortunately, many of those schools are to the benefit of religious groups devoted to perpetuate their social and mental control. At the same time those funds are directly withdrawn from public schools budgets.
Yes, sometimes public schools are not the best choice. That is a different issue mainly associated with parents' lack of involvement in the quality of education provided. In some cases, nefarious unions support poor quality teachers and keep them harming the effectiveness of the public schools.
Anyway, the vouchers deal is to take away money from the free-thinking public schools, and at the same time promote churches' schools, which should be an option for those who prefer to keep their children indoctrinated, but without using taxpayer money. The problem is that the funds taken from the public school system are harming the sustainment and limiting availability of materials and technology; also reducing the payroll money for the teachers and administrators of the free-thinking schools.
In the Press-Gazette's survey, the public supports removing vouchers at a rate of 70 percent.
