Hi Lugus,

Tax money to schools is actually related to class size, so if all these student take these vouchers and go to private schools, yes, the public schools get less money. Discrimination protection is important, too!  What is to stop private schools from simply taking white students and not taking any black ones?

Finally, I don't blame the Democrats for voting against this bill. The Republicans across the country usually have a sneaky, under-handed way of dealing with things, they have never stood for civil rights of for black people and, if they are behind something, you can bet there is a profit margin involved somewhere for someone.

Finally, the parents of DC don't count. I'm sure that lots of well-meaning parents were against busing and for continuing segregation back in the 1960s. Government sometimes needs to take the lead on things to change attitudes. The answer is to put more money into public schools, not less, so that everyone gets the chance for a good education, not just the rich.
