Voucher Education

I generally find the typical online voucher debates tedious and vapid. To get to the meat of the subject, in order to form an educated opinion, a person really must dig into the numbers themselves, and ignore the megaphones and pulpit pounding. Too often (especially here in Utah) this voucher-speak becomes emotional quickly, at which point, I tune out and read a book. On the voucher debate, most people are lacking sound information, victims of propaganda and doctored numbers to support or oppose the legislation.

Recently though, a conversation (multiple posts, and ensuing comments) has erupted through Frank Staheli of Utah's Simple Utah Mormon Politics. The ongoing debate on Frank's blog is something everyone should read and/or participate in.

You may not agree (or disagree), but it is a rational, educational, adult conversation taking place, something we've seen very little of on the issue of vouchers.

  2. Thanks for noticing. I've been very impressed with the civility of the conversation as well. I've learned a few things, too!
