Eric you need to be honest. You don’t use facts but rather make blanket false statements. Eric you said, “we need to be honest. We must begin by acknowledging that vouchers do nothing to improve public education.”

Well, Eric let us rational people look at the facts. The D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program (DCOSP) is just one example an improvement by a voucher program. From the Department of Education Report, Evaluation of the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program; The Program significantly improved students’ chances of graduating from high school. Although students may not have raised their test scores in reading and math as a result of the OSP, they graduated at higher rates. 91 percent of DCOSP students graduate high school, compared to only 70 percent of their peers with similar characteristics. (Contrast this with the 56 percent graduation rate at D.C. public schools. The number one reason parents did not use voucher program – no space in the school.

If you are so incline to embrace intellectual discovery, might I suggest you read the report http://ies.ed.gov/ncee/pubs/20104018/pdf/20104019.pdf
Most of us educated or at least those with inquiring mind have a strong desire for kids to graduate high school and while there use and develop intellectual discovery and rational debate. There are two kinds of statements to support an argument in a debate 1) based on rational statistical debate and 2) on rational argument based on the human experience which is overused and misused by the folks on the left like you.

I would suggest if I used the second argument it could be easily pointed out that artificial barriers to education like teacher unions impede learning; non-responsive and bloated Public School administrations have no incentive to make the schools better and; the cost for secondary education has increased 25% in the past ten years (see http://nces.ed.gov/FastFacts/display.asp?id=66). The end result being your argument is counter-intuitive. However, your objective is not to win on the merits of the data or rational presentation of ideas but to win using the old adage a lie told over and over will result in low information people believing it to be true. Therefore, your hidden agenda is to ensure students do not graduate and/or use intellectual discovery and debate to make informed opinion and decisions. We call these people like you liberals.
