Conservatives feel...

Vouchers and charter schools create competition for the public schools. This requires all schools to operate at the best level they can manage. Students then get the best education possible.

Liberals feel...

that public school education is the best method in which to teach students. Charter schools and vouchers require money that could be used towards public school funding.


Governor Tom Corbett recently released the budget for the state of Pennsylvania. Funding for education was severely cut, which means it will only provide for the basic necessities within the schools.
