Debate Over School Vouchers

LEARN's distinguished signatories write, "We believe that competition brings out the best in us by pushing us the extra mile to attract and keep customers, clients and students." Why then do they oppose giving vouchers to parents who choose to send their children to non-public schools?

Unquestionably, private and parochial schools are getting good results despite the fact that they get no public funding. Many parents who would like to send their children to these schools cannot afford the tuition. Wouldn't it be kind and generous to make that opportunity available to them?
