ALL the MFP money should be dispersed as vouchers and EVERY Louisiana family should receive vouchers.
The money needs to start in the classroom and quit filtering to these leeches and these little fiefdoms call school boards.
If a local government want so to remain in the government school business let their schools compete for the vouchers.
It is asinine to dictate to taxpayers that to receive a publicly financed education you must send your kid to this particular school regardless of it's quality.
Competition among schools will result in better paid, better qualified teachers and much better education of our population.
Teacher's unions know that widespread vouchers will result in better pay to private school teachers working in non union schools and their source of dues will be threatened. Anybody that thinks these union leaders are looking out for good teachers and education is fooling themselves.
