(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

Senator Meeks’ voucher bill for Chicago just passed the Illinois Senate 33-20.

Color me amazed.

    FINALLY!
    Some COMMON sense in the education industry. There is a choice, I hope this new project will make some important changes that need to be made or will there be only a select few schools chosen, or will parents be allowed to place students in religious schools, highly academic achieving schools. Will it be small old systems that drag the community and the kids down, where nothing especially education actually takes place. Having been a past teacher, I saw beautiful minds turn to mush as bright and excited minds turned to complacency, mediocrity because the education system is a failure and still is failing them. I pray this voucher system sets the standard higher.
    Sincerely retired teacher.
