Public Funds For Private Schools Enrich The Rich
In "Public funds for religious schools would be no sin" (Economic Viewpoint, July 15), the bottom line of "free-market" choice is that it will allow elite private schools to select the best students and further enhance their programs with public funding, while public schools will be left to deal with troublesome students with decreased funding. Choice is but a code word for another program to widen the ever-increasing gap between the rich and the poor.
