Phi Delta Kappa is an international organization for professional educators The organizations mission is to promote quality education with particular emphasis on publicly supported education as essential to the development and maintenance of a democratic way of life Each year Phi Delta Kappa conducts a Gallop Poll to see the publics view toward Public Schools The poll tackles many different issues that are important in their own way but the ones that interest me the favoring or opposing a voucher system zero tolerance polices and school standards One of the most controversial issues in the gallup poll is the usage of vouchers as a means of improving the quality of the public schools It is suggested that doing so will promote competition between public and private schools and that competition will bring about improvement in the public schools Opponents of the voucher plan believe that being able to use vouchers for religious schools will violate the separation of church and state established by the First Amendment to the US Constitution In addition parents might be forced to send their children to a school of a different religion because no other schools are available The result of the poll show that 47 favor vouchers 48 oppose them and 5 dont know I am surprised that so many people support vouchers when there is no proof that private schools improve students academic achievement Competition between public and private schools could affect the salaries of presevice teachers and whether or not a teacher can be hired in private schools because of their religion The best public policy is to provide parents with even more choices within the public schools which serve over 90 of children Legislators should concentrate on making all public schools stronger safer more challenging and accountable Public tax dollars should be spent only to improve public schools - not to assist the limited numbers of parents who choose to enroll their children in private
