The Friedman study concluded that 63 percent of Republican and Democratic school parents favor a government voucher program. A voucher program would allow parents to send their child, along with his tax dollars, to the school they believe is the best for the child, whether the school be a private or public institution. This would give all schools a monetary incentive to avoid waste and do their very best with each and every child. The results are just as good, if not better, for Hispanic and African-American voters. 60 percent of African Americans and 74 percent of Hispanics are in favor of a voucher system.
Clearly, parents know that more government funds is not the solution for failing schools; using the funds wisely that schools already receive is the answer parents are looking for. Any presidential candidate who wants to succeed in 2016 must have a strong conservative position on education and voucher programs. That is the best solution for our schools, our nation, and, most importantly, our children.
