Extractions: The Deceptive Price Comparisons of Public Schools vs. Voucher Schools Proponents [of vouchers] routinely compare costs at private schools to per-pupil costs at public schools, and then declare that private education is cheaper. But this argument overlooks a full accounting: Tuition at private schools typically does not cover the actual costs, which include books, transportation, participation in various activities, uniforms and more. San Diego Union-Tribune , June 19, 1998). Private schools receive considerable support from a variety of other sources: charitable donations, fundraising events, and endowments. Parochial schools generally receive support from their congregations. But these sources will not expand with the growth of voucher programs.

MichiganDaily.com About 11% of students in michigan are already in private or parochial schools andif vouchers are instituted statewide a very real possibility under Proposal http://www.pub.umich.edu/daily/2000/july/07-31-2000/edit/02.html
Extractions: This Fall, Michigan voters will be confronted with a ballot measure - known as Proposal 1 - which will institute a limited school voucher program in the state. The measure, being pushed by a group called KidsFirstYes!, would mean that students in poorly performing school districts would be given "opportunity scholarships" of about $3300, which could be used to pay for private or parochial school tuition. While this proposal may seem helpful to students stuck in under-performing schools, it poses a serious risk to the entire public education system of Michigan because it strips the State Constitution of its provision banning the use of public money at private schools. While only about 30 of the state's 582 public school districts would immediately be affected by Proposal 1, the end of the ban on state funding for private schools means the state legislature can expand the program or even take it statewide at will. The proposal also allows local school boards to institute the use of vouchers in their districts. Proposal 1 backers usually only mention its effects on poorly performing schools, but the measure poses the serious threat of widespread and even statewide use of vouchers.

Extractions: Money for public schools can continue to be diverted towards private schools. That is what the Supreme Court decided on Monday when it resolved, eight to one, not to hear a challenge to Wisconsin's school voucher program that provides low-income families with credit of up to $5,000 per child toward tuition for private schools. While the decision does not set any national precedent, it still gives credence to a disturbing national trend. On their face, voucher programs sound like an excellent opportunity for families whose public schools have failed them. But the reality is that vouchers have yet to produce any benefit that outweighs the harms of taking money away from public schools whose resources are already meager enough. Independent annual evaluations of the voucher program in Milwaukee have shown that there is no significant increase in learning for students who received vouchers compared to their counterparts in public schools. Private schools are not inherently better than public ones - last year, two private schools in Milwaukee that had students who utilized vouchers shut down in the middle of the school year. Private schools can often be elitist and have the ability to accept or deny students as they please. Statistics have shown that on average, private schools with religious affiliations typically accept only one out of every three applicants. Students who lack the grades, test scores or intellectual ability to perform well at a private school - those who need special resources the most - will remain essentially abandoned in a financially crippled school district. The purpose of public education is to give every American child an adequate scholastic background, not only the smartest or most well-behaved students.

Extractions: ACADEMIC, PRIVATE AND PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS The years of the village of Grand Rapids, before the growth of the public schools with the High School at their head, were the palmy times for private schools. In the early days they quite overshadowed the poorly equipped district schools, and kept their hold upon the public confidence until the establishment of the public schools upon a liberal basis made the private schools no longer such a necessity. They might well be called legionthey were a multitude, and no more than an enumeration and brief description of the leading ones, and their teachers, can be given. Certain of the pioneer schools have already been mentioned in connection with the history of the public schools, and the most important of the latter, private and parochial institutions of learning, will be noticed in these succeeding paragraphs. July 18, 1842, Miss M. Lovell opened a school in a room "over the Kent store," "for the instruction of Young Ladies in the French Language, Drawing and Chinese Painting," as the advertisement had it. The terms were reasonable$3.00 for French and Painting, and $1.00 extra for drawingand Miss Lovell's school received a goodly share of the patronage of the young society ladies of the village who wished to acquire the accomplishments furnished therein.

Extractions: Students Using Reform Math are Tops in the Nation Based on the TIMSS-R report and news reports The new TIMSS-R Results are quite interesting. U.S. groups participating in this international comparative study include states, large school districts, and consortia of schools. The top four U.S. groups are: the Naperville school district in Illinois, the First in the World consortium on the North Shore in the Chicago area, Montgomery County in Maryland, and a 21-school consortium called the Michigan Invitational Group. The top state in the study, coming in at #7 among US groups, is Michigan. Below are a couple of quotes from the press related to these top-scoring U.S. groups: "A randomly selected group of Michigan eighth-graders performed better than similar groups in 12 other states in an international science and math study. ... Results also were released for a second Michigan group made up of schools that were invited to participate because they met certain criteria. The 21 schools in the Michigan Invitational Group identified themselves as using National Science Foundation materials, having a well-developed curriculum, actively using assessment data and having good communication with parents. That group which also represented rural and urban districts but no parochial schools performed better than the randomly chosen Michigan group." Detroit Free Press, April 5, 2001 (See

Extractions: Michigan Law In 1998 families for the first time were given a choice in how they were going to home educate. They could choose to teach their children at home as a home school, or they could choose to operate as a non-public school. How can a family know which option they should choose? First of all, each family should know that they are not under any obligation to make a final decision immediately. Since no family is required to initiate reporting any information to the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), they can wait until the Department actually requests information before deciding whether to claim exemption (3)(a) or (3)(f), or both. Making this decision should be based on the needs and beliefs of each family, and which exemption they feel will provide them the greatest amount of freedom while meeting their needs. The information provided here should give you a better understanding of the options available and the regulations or obligations that are required with each option. Please remember, the information provided here is not to be taken as legal advice. If you have any questions about which option(s) your family should be home schooling under, seek competent legal advice from the Home School Legal Defense Association ((540) 338-5600), if you are a member, or from your own attorney. Michigan's Compulsory School Attendance Law This law states that "every parent, guardian, or other person in this state having control and charge of a child from the age of 6 to the child's 16th birthday, shall send that child to the public schools during the entire school year" (MCL 380.1561, Section 1561). Thankfully, Michigan's Compulsory School Attendance law also contains exemptions so that all children between the ages of 6 and 16 do NOT have to attend a public school.
