Public shouldn't fund for-profit schools

I listened to a discussion on vouchers and private schools. A reporter from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel questioned a private school administrator and was told private schools don't need to answer questions such as funding sources, curriculum or staff backgrounds. Why hide this information?

Also I learned that private schools can take students and send any student back to public school based on performance, but keep the public money.

I think that it is wrong for public tax dollars to go to schools operated for profit. Many schools don't require fully licensed teachers.

People who work directly with young children should be held to the highest standards of education and training by experienced teachers and compensated fairly. Young children need nurturing along with relevant instructions. Also, it's unconscionable to desert the poor. The over 800 homeless students in Green Bay public schools are given help and acceptance, a chance for a better life.

Public education has been cut drastically since Vietnam. Restore funding to educate all, not the few. Because we're all in this together.
