Ethan at SLCSpin says that we already have a two-tier educational system:
There is already a two tiered system.
There are schools poor people CAN attend
schools poor people CANNOT attend.
There are two problems with this reasoning in supporting school vouchers.
#1. There will still be schools poor kids can attend, and schools poor kids can't attend. The difference will be that the poor kids will be paying for both classifications of schools.
#2. Much like HB174, point #2 ammends point #1. There will actually be three teirs of schools. The first tier will be schools that poor kids can attend. Rich kids will still attend these schools. These schools will be regulated by the government. The second tier will be schools in which some poor kids and rich kids can attend, but many poor kids cannot attend. These schools will also be regulated by the government, because they are accepting government money. The last tier is the group that will only be attended by rich kids. They wil remain free of government regulation, because they refuse money from the government.
