“ Voucher Interest High Among Anti-Mask Mandate Parents “

‘ If you’re a parent in Arizona and your child’s school requires students to wear masks, Gov. Doug Ducey is offering $7,000 in federal COVID-19 relief funds to help you send your child elsewhere.

Interest in the program, and expansion of Arizona’s existing, state-funded school vouchers, has surged since the state began accepting applications in August. The Associated Press first reported that thousands of applications for the vouchers have already been started or completed by parents who object to mask requirements and other COVID-19 mitigation measures.

Ducey has criticized schools implementing those policies as “playing games.” ‘

I vaguely remember a similar call for vouchers for parents who didn't want to send their kids to public school, and wanted assistance to send them to private school.

It move may have been made due to some text books talking about evolution.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Yes, reward the snowflakes with cash for anti-social behavior from funds intended for something else. The irony is that many probably don’t realize they now get to transport the kid to and from school themselves, in addition to other expenses.

“Vouchers” Are a Legacy of southern strategies to fight against desegregation in schools.

“We will start our own school that is whites only ! And get the government to pay for it !”

Racism masquerading as Christianity, whose founder was decidedly against racism.

How about just putting all the vaccinated/mask-wearing kids in one school and the unvaccinated disease spreaders in another? There are enough teachers of both ilks to make it work.

That wouldn't further the agenda of dismantling public education.

Vouchers have always been the north star for the bigoted, racist, classist set.

The right wingers in California seem to be using the term "school choice." I seem to recall that some of the more successful candidates in the governor recall election were supporters. That proposal got swamped in all the discussion about Covid and masks etc, but the whole recall election was defeated so soundly that we haven't been hearing much about the idea. Maybe talk radio is still flogging it.

SFV high schools are now mostly charter. Turning control over to locals has quelled private school mantra and produced some surprisingly good academic results.

I love that idea. It would make it obvious which approach works at preventing the spread of disease.

There could be bumper stickers:

My son/daughter is an Honor Student at PS Control Group 45*

Proud Parent of son/daughter that almost graduated from PS COVID45*

They died with their masks off. FREEDOM!
