Education Study Finds Worst Performance in Conservative Christian Schools
Education is a serious matter, and I would not wish a poor education on anyone...even if that is what they want. I know it is tempting to laugh about this one, but I think that would be a mistake. Yes, the sort of people who would send their children to conservative Christian schools are probably not our most rational neighbors, but we are still going to live in a society that includes their children.
The federal Department of Education found that public school kids do as well or better than those in private schools. Nice to hear some positive news about the public school system for a change. But the real story here is that the kids in conservative Christian schools performed significantly worse in math than those in public schools. This suggests that at least some of Bush's enthusiasm over vouchers was misplaced.
