Letter: Ask before taking vouchergeld

It was said once that you could pay off the Vikings to keep from being attacked. But it was never the end of the story. The saying went, “Those who pay the Danegeld never get rid of the Dane.”

We can apply the reverse of that saying to school vouchers. Those who take the government money never get rid of the government. Just how much influence is the government going to want to have over how and what you teach in return for that money? Better to ask that question now before you take the governmentgeld.
