"I proclaim publicly that I favor ending government involvement in education."
President, Sutherland Institute
"We see vouchers as a major step toward the complete privatization of schooling. In fact, after careful study, we have come to the conclusion that they are the only way to dismantle the current socialist regime."
President, Heartland Institute
(From an essay published by the Cato Institute)
"Incrementalism is a different strategy. It consists of seeking passage of very limited or modest voucher plans with no provisions for later expansion. Supporters of an incrementalist strategy plan to introduce at a future date new legislation that would expand the program."
Design Guidelines for School Vouchers
The Heartland Institute
"Early voucher bills may move us only slowly toward separation. They may include provisions that temporarily prolong the power of unions, school boards, and other remnants of the socialist regime; limit the number of students who can participate; set voucher amounts too low; and place restrictions on qualifying schools. But once established, those programs will be broadened.
Vouchers offer a halfway house to wean the public from their addiction to government provision of education. By removing institutional barriers to privatization and setting in motion a dynamic that ensures further movement toward competition and choice, vouchers are a necessary step toward complete separation."
“Republicans must not sign these petitions!”
President, Parents for Choice
They’ve already spent millions in their crusade to crush public schools and destroy one of our nation’s greatest promises: universal access to a free public education!
They think we’re too gullible to discover their true intentions.
They think that by belittling those who defend our capable and moral public education system and the wonderful people who sacrifice so much to teach our children that we will all cower in silence.
They think they can bully Utah voters with their money and threats. After all, if it worked with our legislature, the rest of us should just fall like dominoes.
But there’s something they didn’t count on – the courage of Utahns to stand up and fight!Let your voice be heard – SUPPORT THE REFERENDUM!
