  • We will see where this goes with the fine leaders of the democratic party of Illinos.Vouchers is another program like the other programs for the last 40 years.School choice is all well and good but what happens to these kids when they go home.I can't see this working unless parents not parent,take responsibility for the support that is needed for these children.At the end of the school day the teacher does not go home with their students,thats where mom and dad step in.................
