3. I went to a private, religious school myself
I would have cut out my right eye before I sent my kids to a religous school, FREE OR NOT. Where I live in Florida, a private NON SECTARIAN, NON CHARTER school, costs from $14,000 to $25,000 PER CHILD, per year. What voucher is going to pay for that? RELIGOUS schools, as in Fundie, CHRISTIAN schools, will be the only ones to even come CLOSE to any kind of voucher.

Idiots. Only the RICH, who can already afford it, will benefit my a state voucher.
