Vouchers: The great bait and switch

Joe Thomas at Shut Up and Teach, blogs about one of my biggest pet peeves.

The claim from the vouchers crowd, that their big interest in vouchers is just to provide poor parents with more access to private schooling. Read, "Fool me once, Darcey."

It's a bait and switch. "The primary recipients of private school tuition tax credit money are families whose children are already enrolled in private schools." (Wilson, 2002)
