It’s rather a taboo to mention it, but by placing these two items together, what should become clear is how this type of maneuver is to The Separation Between Church and State what the removal of the Glass Steagall Act was to retaining a wall between Wall St. speculation and official banking:
“Vouchers schools on the whole perform worse than the Milwaukee Public Schools. In the last quarter century, vouchers schools have drained over a billion dollars of taxpayers’ money away from Milwaukee students who depend on the public schools.”
“The budget is also expanding the statewide voucher program, under which tax dollars are funneled into private, overwhelmingly religious schools. (The program is modeled after Milwaukee’s private school voucher program which began in 1990 and which now includes 112 schools and 25,000 students.)”
Like many others, I see a danger in this type of funding since it is pushing a Christian Theocracy with as much respect for diversity and Democracy as is demonstrated by the Taliban. THE outcome in fact would be an American Entrenched Christian Taliban!
This problem is already significant within “military culture” and impacting women’s access to reproductive freedom in too many U.S. hospitals and clinics.
