The goal is to reduce public school to a terminal ward of blacks, poors, and dead-enders taught by minimum-wage temps and retreads. There will be no interest in providing tax dollars to support 'them'. The best of the winners will be revived Catholic schools, who still remember how to run a system, but have lost their most important asset--the subminimum wage nuns.

The goal is also to funnel tax dollars to religious institutions. It's the institution of a Evangelical fundamentalist madrassa system for the poor of Louisiana.

AND private schools aren't bound to No Child Lef Behind testing. What a dysfunctional system-- and that's the point!

Update on Louisiana: after talking about doing the right thing for parents and kids by implementing the voucher system, representative on the legislative floor talk openly about denying funding to an Islamic school.

"The games that we play in this body with the rules and the law need to come to an end. Either you have the votes to pass it or you don't," he said.

Rep. Kenneth Havard, R-Jackson, objected to including the Islamic School of Greater New Orleans in a list of schools approved by the education department to accept as many as 38 voucher students. Havard said he wouldn't support any spending plan that "will fund Islamic teaching."

"I won't go back home and explain to my people that I supported this," he said.

"It'll be the Church of Scientology next year," said Rep. Sam Jones, D-Franklin.

Carter, R-Baton Rouge, said the Islamic school withdrew its request to participate in the voucher program.

"They're not interested. The system works," he said.
