        Papa Paul - I think you have hot upon a real important issue
here. I teach the economics of education and subscribe to an educational
policy mailing list and it is interesting the real division between those
who advocate private or religious or whatever schooling and those who
want to indoctrinate our children. We have to be extremely vigilant on this.
 
        Vouchers, charter schooling, and other school choice issues are
paramount to success in keeping our society free.
