The case against school vouchers by Edd Doerr( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Controversy over whether public funds should be used to support nonpublic education has raged since the early 19th century. In the 1990s the debate centers around elementary and secondary school tuition vouchers or tutorial assistance grants. This book summarizes the case against vouchers and provides evidence and documentation for each argument. The chapters argue that voucher proposals undermine religious liberty; clash with the Establishment Clause of the Constitution; run counter to public opinion; provide funding to fundamentalist Christian schools that teach bigotry; conflict with the major tenets of American democracy--respect for diversity, intellectual freedom, and religious tolerance; create additional transportation costs; and exacerbate inequities among school districts. Appendices contain information on Milwaukee's voucher "experiment," nonpublic school enrollment by state, selected quotations addressing state-church separation and the value of public education, and suggestions for further reading (17 annotated sources.)
