School Vouchers: introduction
Everyone agrees that education is important, but there is disagreement about the best way to provide it. In the United States, there is a long tradition of tax-supported and state-administered 'public' schools. There is also a traditional argument that says that such tax-based funding is unfair to those without children or to those who choose to educate their children at home or in religious or other private schools.
Recently, some people have suggested that instead of, or in addition to, support for public (state-controlled) schools, government should provide financial support for parents who choose to educate their children in private schools through a system of School Vouchers (often called "school choice" by supporters) which parents could 'spend' at public or other schools.
