Capitalism has proven to the world that competition produces better results than monopolies. Costs decrease, quality increases, and better products are delivered to consumers.
Illinois started a program in 2017 called Invest in Kids which provides a tax credit for parents wanting their kids in private schools but can’t afford it: http://www.revenue.state.il.us/InvestInKids/
The tax credit is available to contributors.
JB Pritzker doesn’t like the program and vows to get rid of it: https://www.wcia.com/news/capitol-news/invest-in-kids-causing-political-conflict/1323927447
Last week was School Choice Week. If dollars were allowed to follow the kids instead of being handed to school districts, how would education change?
Schools would have to complete for your kids. More specialized schools would arise to meet the differing needs of kids. Today kids are herded into classrooms that can’t address the ways they learn. They aren’t allowed to learn at their own pace or concentrate on areas of interest that spur their imagination.
If families were given money to pick the schools of their choice, there would be an almost overnight cost decrease and quality increase.
Evidently progressives think kids can choose their own gender, but not their own school.
Illinois wants your kids in their state-run indoctrination camps instead of allowing them to achieve their own greatness.
Yes, progressives have a war on children. One would think all people want the most intelligent future workers possible.
Illinois government schools like creating sheep instead.
Beat them by home schooling, cheap and even free programs are available on-line.
