    8 Reasons Why School Vouchers Are A Very Bad Idea

    “School choice” is a common term you hear from corporate privatizers and right-wing politicians. By “choice,” they usually mean taking money out of public schools to fund and send students to schools that are privately run, often by religious groups. This week, Jan. 26 to Feb. 1, is National School Choice Week, sponsored by ALEC, FreedomWorks, the Heritage Foundation, Michelle Rhee’s StudentsFirst and other groups. In honor of this weeklong celebration, here are a few examples of why school vouchers are bad policy:

    1. Are voucher schools safe?

    2. They teach pretty nutty things

    3. Students underperform

    4. Where’s the money?

    5. Discrimination

    6. Science is real

    7. Segregation
