How did the Castro family achieve a second step moon landing for their three children which is now possible for other families … “if only?”

The Chicago Tribune front page article titled: Faith, Hope, and Prayer, reported the decision made by to pull three children from public schools and send to private religious schools, thanks to merit scholarships program being saved from an attempt to end the program that was defeated in 2020.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom proverb, and idiom, and my accolades to the Chicago Tribune to write this front page article to help more parents to take the second step moon landing critically needed for the future of Illinois to reduce crime.

King Solomon

Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverb 22:6)

Idiom – Squeaky Wheels Get the Most Grease

The person complaining or protesting the loudest or most frequently is the one who will receive the most attention from others.

What’s My Point?

The funding to allow the Castro family to be awarded the scholarships was derived from an Illinois law which allows affluent donors in Illinois to deduct donations made to the fund as tax decoctions.

This deduction was almost changed in 2020 by Illinois legislators but was saved because of squeaky wheels of voters to defeat the measure.

What is now possible, thanks to the Supreme Court ruling in 2020 is for voters to take the second step moon landing which is to vote in 2022 elections for only legislators to support school vouchers which will make it possible for all poor or middle class families to afford to do the same as the Castro family and most affluent families, along with most  legislators, and 40 percent of public school teachers now send their children to private schools based on their religious values and the advice of the ancient proverb.

In My Opinion

Now this same choice is possible for all families to understand that the Supreme Court ruling has made it possible for all families to choose what is the best education choices for parents instead of government legislators where to send their children to be taught their religious and moral values instead of secular public-school boards mandating what to teach their children every subject except religious faith hope and prayer.

And in my opinion, if more children attended private religious schools in grades one to eight, there will be in the future less crime and shootings taking place that we read and hear in the news every day.

You Decide

Should your wheels start squeaking up to “If only” vote to elect legislators in the 2022 elections support school choice or school vouchers which is now legal, thanks to the Supreme Court ruling that all previous State Laws to prohibit tax funds for private schools was unconstitutional/?
