A glimpse of what school vouchers could bring?

Mother Jones had this list of things that students are learning in private schools in Louisiana that receive taxpayer-subsided vouchers. It’s been bouncing all over the Internet, but worth sharing.

Highlights include teachings that say most slave owners were kind, and that those warning about global warming are actually trying to subvert the economy

Take a look, it’s amusing in a horrifying way. The link to the MJ article is here.

North Carolina may very well have a voucher program of its own, though whether it would resemble anything like what the article portrays the Louisiana program as having is yet to be seen.

A program that would have let companies to offset their taxes by offering tax scholarships to private schools for poor children came very close to passing this past session, and school voucher groups say they plan on pushing it next year.
