The contagion is spreading! Zack Kopplin has documented how vouchers abuse taxpayer investment in education in many places, not just Bobby Jindal’s corrupt little wanna-be theocracy.
Liberty Christian School, in Anderson, Indiana, has field trips to the Creation Museum and students learn from the creationist A Beka curriculum. Kingsway Christian School, in Avon, Indiana, also has Creation Museum field trips. Mansfield Christian School, in Ohio, teaches science through the creationist Answers in Genesis website, run by the founder of the Creation Museum. The school’s Philosophy of Science page says, “the literal view of creation is foundational to a Biblical World View.” All three of these schools, and more than 300 schools like them, are receiving taxpayer money.
Vouchers are nothing but a way to uncouple schools from a responsibility to meet educational standards, and the worst schools love ‘em: they can get money for teaching garbage.
