Rationale:Vouchers provide the opportunity for lower income families to send their children to private schools otherwise unattainable for those students

http://www.ncsl.org/research/education/school-choice-vouchers.aspx

U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Zelman v. Simmons-Harris (2002) that Cleveland’s voucher program did not violate the church-state provisions of the U.S. Constitution.

Government incentives to attend private religious schools violates the separation of church and state.

Vouchers would inspire free-market competition

Lowers educational standards and places minories at risk

Zelman case omitted addressing state constitutional issues. About 36 states have provisions stronger than the US constitution, which bar taxpayer money from funding religious schools and education

U.S. Supreme Court ruled Cleveland’s voucher program did not violate the church-state provisions of the U.S. Constitution.

Vouchers hurt the intended users as they do not cover the whole cost of the school, and only families able to afford the rest of tuition, transportation, uniforms, books and supplies are able to use them

Uses tax money from public schools to fund these vouchers, lowering abilities for public education

State-funded scholarships that pay for students to attend private school rather than public school.

“I believe we should focus vouchers on poor and working class families who do not have the resources to move if they live in communities where schools do not work, nor do they have the resources to put their children in private schools.”-Howard Fuller, Ph.D, Director of the Institute for the Transformation of Learning at Marquette University in Wisconsin
