Edd Doerr: The Great School Voucher Fraud- review by Diane RavitchQuicklink submitted By Susan Lee Schwartz Permalink
"Edd Doerr,president of Americans for Religious Liberty is a strong proponent of separation of church and state. He explains why vouchers are a bad idea, and reviews the 27 state referenda on vouchers. Wherever vouchers exist, they have been authorized by state legislatures, never by voters. State legislatures are influenced by political contributions and are easier to manipulate than voters, as Dick &Betsy DeVos learned when their own voucher proposal in Michigan went down to defeat in 2000. Doerr’s shows how voucher advocates ignore the Founding Fathers’ conviction about religious liberty. He cites Thomas Jefferson’s Virginia legislation called “A Bill for Establishing Religious Freedom.” so bear in mind as Trump and DeVos and others promote vouchers that would divert money from public schools to religious schools, they are at war not only with voters but with the Founding Fathers."
