No. Why would it?
Will it be coupled with a law that says these private schools can't deny students entry based on race, sex, religion, socioeconomic status, etc?
You're not getting the point. We're putting the education dollars in the hands of the parents. If someone wants to run a school and not allow certain students to attend, that's their choice to not accept those dollars (but then why bother, right?). I'm not sure how or why this would be a factor.
Silly me, being the person to first mention race...
Oh, wait. I guess I wasn't that silly after all but was in fact responding to you directly stating that schools should be allowed to prohibit based on those exact criteria
Sigh. More complex question fallacy. I was speaking of there being no need to pass a new law if we created vouchers. That's the question that was asked, right?
The ability for private schools to discriminate on those factors would remain exactly as it is right now
. Meaning that you could discriminate based on **** (you can have all boys and all girls schools, right), and you can discriminate based on religion (currently legal), and I suppose socioeconomic status (whatever you think that means, but I don't think it's currently prohibited), but you can't discriminate based on race.
I wasn't even thinking about race when I answered the question. I discounted it because race is currently already illegal to discriminate against. I was speaking of the other things and saying that schools could if they want, but most wont because they'd just be limiting their potential pool of revenue, so it's not a factor.
Backpedal faster! Harder! Faster! Harder!
Not a backpedal at all. He asked if I thought we should pass a new law to prevent private schools from discriminating, and I said no. Again, racial discrimination is already illegal
. So his question really only pertains to forms of discrimination which are not currently illegal but we might think should be prohibited if we extend public money to them in the form of vouchers.
It is telling that you zoomed right in on race though. It's like the ringing of a bell for you isn't it?
