My friends and I, as well as my children, are products of excellent public school educations. A well rounded education is key to a healthy, productive society. Teaching critical thinking is imperative but, sadly, has all but been eliminated due to funding cuts. Critical thinking classes, along with music, art and the humanities, have all been cut due to lack of funds. A good liberal arts education, i.e.the humanities, taught at all levels of education, produces educated, compassionate, ethical and thinking students. The last thing America needs is a society led by the elite...those whose education was funded by wealthier parents. Those not in the upper 2% will be hurt by the proposed voucher system. I fear for our country's future if we dismantle our public education system. This bill, and DeVos, should both be defeated and retired to the dust bin.
