Who could make this up? Please note--  that most of the attempts to steer public dollars to private schools  happen at the state level. One of those bills was recently introduced in Iowa by Senator Chelgren who claimed he had a business degree from Forbco Management 'school ' which   trains Sizzler employees.   Chelgren had a certificate from a course he took when he worked for  Sizzler Steakhouse as a teenager! His bill would give public money to parents to use at their discretion for “competent private instruction.” Perhaps he wants  Iowans to take courses at the Sizzler Steakhouse, paid for by taxpayers.  Perhaps,  youngsters could attend Hamburger University at McDonalds on the taxpayer dime. But it is no laughing matter. “This bill would directly divert taxpayer dollars dedicated to public education funding and hand it to private religious schools and unregulated homeschools.”
