Re: Diane RavitchHelp the ACLU Sue the State of Nevada to Stop Vouchers

Until very recently, beginning with the perverse promotion of corporate curricula, state and federal governments have never had “the power to require children to receive a particular philosophy of education”.  Parents have always had the maximum freedom, within reason, to choose private institutions and alternate forms of education for their children.

What state and federal governments are required by their constitutions to do is to hold publicly funded institutions, organizations, and facilities of all kinds, along with private contractors receiving public funds, accountable to the people for the democratic principle of equal protection under the law.

And, yes, there is a particular philosophy pervading that provision of equal protection, but I don’t think it serves the purpose of the people to subvert it.
