I dont believe this should be handled at the Federal level. If States wished to do this, I would have no issue with it.

We as the federal government physically cannot do this. The funding for education comes primarily from state and local taxes, which we have no direct control over.

I vote nay because it is too vague. I like the idea though, I recommend taking another shot!

I commend gold for tackling a complicated issue, but a program like this should be decentralized instead of centralized.

Nay. This is a local and/or state issue and well outside of the federal government's given authority.

Voting nay. Regardless this legislation is way too vague to be enforced.

Common core is just golding our students to a higher standard. Odd tgat peoole don't like that, wait. It's because peoole don't understand what they don't know

This bill seems too vague in its current form, I'm not sure I can vote Yes quite yet. What are these minimum "educational standards"?

Nay. This is a sure fire way to destroy the American education system and bring us further behind on the world stage.

Section 1. Government spending per student amounted to $12,401 in 2011-2012. Parents can now choose to receive a voucher in the amount of $9,000 for the school of their choice.
Section 2. This voucher only applies to schools that satisfy minimum educational standards.
Section 3. Any parent who so chooses can still send their child to public school.
