Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Should education funding be available directly to families through a grant, scholarship, or education savings account so that parents can send their children to the school of their choice, including religious schools? N* My wife and I made the decision to send our children to a Christian School until fifth grade and paid for their foundation in education. I sit on the school board of our local School District and know the benefits of funding and what a good public school can do to build a community. I graduated from New Hope Solebury School district that continuously ranks in the top of Pennsylvania's School districts, and I understand how great a public education can be. Religious education is the responsibility of the parents and fostering the foundation of a vital religious base. Funding religious schools with public monies is a double edge sword. The founding fathers lived under a State Church and understood the importance to foster all religions in a society.
