Why School Vouchers Are A Bad Idea

From a limited-government standpoint, school vouchers are a bad idea because they expand government control into places where it doesn't previously exist.

Here is some research and commentary:

Gov. Haslam praises President Obama; maybe following his orders!

Governor Haslam

 

TN Governor Bill Haslam supports President Obama's education plan!!!

Read the Governor's confession of his love for the President's unconstitutional and big-government plan for Tennessee schools:
http://nashvillepost.com/blogs/postpolitics/2011/3/24/the_gov_backs_potus_on_education

What's even more appalling is that Obama's Education Secretary has been talking to Governor Haslam "weekly" since he took office. This infers that Governor Haslam is taking instructions from President Obama! Perhaps this is why Governor Haslam recently compromised on the recent teachers union bill? http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2011/mar/19/haslam-backs-union-compromise/

Why does a Republican Governor support a Democrat's federal education plan?
Why is Governor Haslam talking to President Obama's administration so often about education?
Where in the Constitution does the federal government receive any power over the issue of education?
Why should the federal government have any say in how Tennessee schools are run or how Tennesseans educate their children?

If you share these questions why don't you e-mail Governor Haslam and ask him!

Here is his personal e-mail address:
bhaslam@aol.com

And of course copy his office address on all correspondence too:
bill.haslam@tn.gov

Don't forget to call:
