As expected, the new Douglas County school board in Colorado voted to end its school voucher program which was successfully blocked by the state courts. The voters decided to elect a teachers union friendly school board and now have voted accordingly.
So only public money can only go to public schools, so says the new school board. So forget about money going to the children and only the children. That tax money must go to support an institution and to the adults that run and teach in it.
If you think politics are out of education now, you’re only fooling yourselves. Lest we forget about Common Core (or before that, Outcome Based Education). These teachers unions will forever support Democrats and progressives to keep their scam going and our children hostage to their agenda. They will also indoctrinate the children with political and religious (yes religious…just not Judeo-Christian) worldviews that will only take America into a new dark age of tyranny. No different than how China embraced communism. It began in the schools. John Dumphy knew this well;
“I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being.” Now Dumphy’s vision has been emboldened in Douglas County, Colorado.
The only way now to break this public school monopoly is to support the abolishment of the public education system. That way the tax money that is set aside for these institutions for education can finally be returned to the parents (and that might be a fight as well) in which they can only pay once and not twice for the education of our children. Otherwise, we shall forever fund a work placement program for adults that only uses its children as not only pawns to exist but to become useful idiots in the progressive cause.
We still need to promote choice and competition (including homeschooling), but we need to take the government out of the equation now. We need a ‘Separation of School & State.’
The Douglas County school board voted on a resolution to end the voucher program and years of litigation that reached the U.S. Supreme Court and reflected the national debate over publicly-funded school choice.
One of the seven board members abstained from voting because he is a plaintiff in a lawsuit challenging the voucher program. All others voted to end it.
