We, the undersigned, appeal to our political leaders to support school choice by implementing a school voucher program and/or system of tax credits. Parents have a natural right to determine the education of their children. The needs of each child, combined with the values of the parents, should be paramount in determining how and where a child is educated. Under the current system, funds for education are involuntarily extracted from the entire populace through taxation, so the state has undertaken the responsibility to fund the education of all children. Therefore, the state must provide educational funding for each child in the state. The selection of the educational provider should be made by those with the greatest interest in the welfare of each child, that is, the parents.
