“Would you explain to me the appeal of vouchers?”

Apropos the previous post about liquidating the New Paltz school system and simply meeting the compulsory education requirement with vouchers, I was asked by an interlocuter of high standing the question that appears in the header.

He’s asking that, I believe, not in regard to the efficacy of school vouchers, but with regard to the fact that they constitute merely another form of theft from the community to pay for OPC with YOPM (other people’s children with yet other people’s money).

I gave a long-winded answer that could be summarized like this: some of the tragedy we think we see before us has already proceeded on to its rendezvous with farce.
