The arguments being put forward by those pushing the voucher proposal are almost laughable. "Liberal," Ted Kennedy," "Oreo cookies," on and on. How silly can they get?
Hopefully Carbon County voters will soundly vote to defeat this attempt to weaken our public school system which brings together children of all races, religion and backgrounds. Our public school system has shaped and sustained our pluralistic democracy. Very few countries in the world benefit from such diversity in education.
As our society grows ever more diverse, it becomes even more important for children to study together and learn to tolerate and respect their differences.
