Which of the following statements would you agree with?
1. A school voucher system should be put into place, to more easily allow parents to remove their children from sometimes-deficient public schools and place them in more appropriate, parent-selected educational environments.
2. A ward opt-out system should be put into place, to more easily allow parents to remove their children from sometimes-dysfunctional wards and place them in more appropriate, parent-selected ward environments.
For your answer to each: Why?
Russell’s very interesting post from a little while back on the conceptual links between these two concepts, and their implications for Mormons: “Why be beholden to dysfunctional ward, but not a dysfunctional school system? Why does oneâ€™s presence at church, even if one should have complaints with its functioning, loom so much larger in the thinking of your average potential homeschooling Mormon than does the similar call to support the local school system?”
(Coming tomorrow: A poll with three questions! Okay, maybe not.)
