On the other side of the issue, some people feel that school vouchers would be used in many cases to subsidize religious schools. This becomes a hot topic due to the separation of church and state. In short, does money not being used by a student belong to that student, and can it be used for a private, and sometimes religious, school.

As for the NCLB act it was more of a never ending failing cycle. First off the act states that people are able to choose what school they want to go to when that clearly is not the case because each city has district lines. Then the act claims that all schools have to do is apply for grants and ask for money from the government or they can get money based off of the schools’ test scores. When these schools in bad neighborhoods have no money to implement programs to help students do better in school, and in turn they cannot get any money because they are not meeting the state’s standards. That is how this act becomes a failing cycle, and is only able to actually work for the nice public schools because they are the ones meeting the state’s standards which meaning they are more likely to receive any money or grants from the government.

Instead of a one-size-fits-all model, School choice programs offer parents various options from which to pick the educational settings they believe will work best for their child.
This is in part because public schools bring together different races into one school building. Private schools are intended for the wealthy, according to this position.

This is another free ride for the wealthy, the very people who do not need governmental assistance.

Free education allows everyone to study but with low intensity or levels of education. For example, governments with low incomes would not have enough money to employ professional teachers or provide students with all the technological equipment necessary in their studies; it is too expensive.

However, education is not a business like other businesses; it does not turn out a product whose value can be expressed adequately in terms of market price. Education does impart business or workplace skills, of course, but the value of reading and writing well cannot be captured fully by a future salary. The love of learning and growing as a student mentally is what shapes each individual's identity in public life.
