Will a news report in the Wall Street Journal become the first step to awake the USA on the issue of school choice or school vouchers?

The Wall Street Journal commentary in the Chicago Tribune titled: About School Choice contained this statement:

“Parents of color don’t have a lot of choice and resources.” (about the schools they attend because there is no school choice.”

Another WSJ article titled: School Choice: Better Than Prozac

“A new study reports less suicide among children with education options.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb and information about how school choice or school vouchers not only about charter schools’ choices, but private religious schools are beginning to awaken in the USA because it is both wise and no longer unconstitutional in States because of the 2020 Supreme Court Decision.

King Solomon

“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? (Proverb 1:22)

What’s My Point?

Rhode Island school board has taken the first step, which is to address the issue of school choice for the most needed and vulnerable children and parents’ requests and needs instead of teacher’s unions.

For example, this statement in previous posts:

“Black parents love charter schools and voucher-supported private school vouchers because they teach values, self-respect, and hope. But no, if this option for poor or lower-~income parents has more Democrat opposition than ever.”

The WSJ article contained this statement

“One reason is that charter and private schools enforce stricter discipline than traditional public schools. Choice programs also allow parents to pull their kids out of public schools if they are struggling and send them to schools that are safer or a better cultural fit.”

My point is not only having the Supreme Court decision made it possible to end the inequality of parents who cannot afford to send their children to charter schools, but also to private religious schools of their choice.

In My Opinion

Wisdom has been defined as obtaining understanding leading to knowledge to discern various matters, we all will experience in life.

Some experiences will sadly include being discriminated because of being born with different color skin, or to believe in religion and have to pay two tuition to pass on religious values for our children to be taught in depth in a private religious school because we, both Blacks, and now middle-class families cannot afford to “…. have a lot of choice and resources.”.

In my opinion, now is the time to contact your legislative representatives to pass laws to undo the inequity that was supposedly ended after the civil war which is to remove unconstitutional Blaine Amendments to prevent public funds be used to fund private schools instead of union controlled secular schools’ teachings that parents do not want taught to their children because they are not their cultural values

You Decide

Will the Rhode Island school board decision result in a first step long overdue which was supposedly righted after the civil war?

Will the news media report the news about this issue to parents so they can become aware and contact their legislators that school choice or school vouchers is what they want them to focus on in 2021?

Would King Solomon judge USA parents to be “simpletons” for allowing 200 years to pass by before we address the inequities of school choice or school vouchers by our Legislators and Legislative bodies to ignore the issue of school choice or school vouchers that parents want and pay taxes for their children, not the government or unions children?
