School vouchers , for hard working public education teachers this has become a job threat. In general, most teachers fear voucher programs because they are taking students out of their class rooms. Thus putting more teachers on the bubble to achieve high scores
or face the consequences. The voucher was intended to help poor families who want to send their children to a better school because the school near them is low performing and our political system deems it necessary to intervene by making rash judgements that the school system is a fault. Parents ahould have a choice but in reality most parents who have recieved vouchers to move their children to a better school wind up bringing their child back with in a year or two because the vouchers don't cover everything or their child has special needs that the other school does not have. Instead of helping school districts, this issue has become a polictial pawn in state government with politicians getting involved in issues where their own children do not attend public schools.
I believe instead of having a low performing school, lets make that school better by training the teachers and bringing in resourses
that would help the students and teachers. Fix the problem, that is the logical thing to do. As a teacher, I must say parents must be part of the solution, if parents do not get involved with home work, encouraging their child to read, and practicing multiplication with their son or daughter, the student/child will struggle. You can not depend on just class room time to achieve greatness.
