Education Answers That Vouchers Question.
Sroufe, Gerald E.
This speech explains education voucher programs and responds to criticisms of such programs. The education voucher system is described as one that questions traditional structures and methods while it equalizes opportunities to purchase education, fosters federally funded and controlled alternative school settings and programs, and gives parents control of a share of public resources for their children's education. Variations of the basic proposal provide supplemental vouchers for preschool education, education of the poor, reading education, and special programs for high school dropouts. According to the author, opposition by public school officials to proposed voucher experiments demonstrates the need for these spokesmen to respond with constructive reorganizations of their own.
