Emergency School Vouchers Likely for Katrina Victims

BY Karla Dial

A month after Hurricane Katrina displaced 372,000 schoolchildren and laid waste to portions of three Gulf Coast states, students headed back to class in one of Louisiana's hardest-hit districts, Jefferson Parish. But for thousands more, scattered across dozens of states, relief in the form of emergency school vouchers appeared to be the most likely way they would start making the journey back to normalcy.

Legislators are not to blame

BY George C. Cross

In early August 2005, Libby Sternberg, executive director of Vermonters for Better Education, declared in her weekly newsletter, "Wanda Haynes of Middletown Springs is closing her child care business in two weeks as a direct result of her local public school expanding into the pre-K business." Since that date, Ms Sternberg, Rob Roper, state director of FreedomWorks, and others have cleverly tried to connect the closing of this child care business with the enactment of a small paragraph in the budget bill passed by the Legislature in its final days and signed into law by Gov. Douglas. As that old commentator says, "And now the rest of the story."

Vouchers for New Orleans

This article originally ran in the National Review Online on Sept. 15, 2005. There is a second rescue urgently needed in the terrible aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and one that is long overdue: saving New Orleans school kids from their broken public-school system. The tragedy of the storm provides America with a golden opportunity, and the answer lies in the tens of billions of dollars of federal emergency spending. Let's create emergency school-choice vouchers for the children displaced by Katrina.

Excellence and Equity for All Children

Pastor Revell is the pastor at Agape International Ministries in Rock Hill, SC and is a founding member of Clergy for Educational Options. Parental choice has become a hot issue in this state. Unfortunately, it is generating the heat of controversy rather than the light of reason. Opponents of reform, including certain media, are now pulling out the race card and arguing that school choice will "re-segregate" public schools. That charge is not just false, it is hypocritical.

Washington State Tax Fact #13: Education Spending Already at Record Levels

History shows that this simply isn’t true—Washington’s inflation-adjusted, per pupil spending has increased by 16.5 percent since 1994 according to the Evergreen Freedom Foundation.
