Duelling Perspectives on Religious Schools

This letter I wrote about funding for religious schools was published in the Vancouver Sun.

Re: Should the public fund religious schools?, Oct. 31

The question posed by columnist Douglas Todd — Should the public fund religious schools?”– is the wrong question and leads to false conclusions.

The questions ought to be, Should parents be able to send children to a school of their choosing with the money the government seizes as taxation? And why is government running any school system?

Let parents direct the money they earn to a quality school in an independent educational marketplace and end the government tax-monopoly.
