It’s bad enough to have vouchers available to disabled and low-income students, but for vouchers to be allowed for religious schools is beyond the pale for the far Left.

Parents of the students going to Islamic schools have chosen to send their children to “an Islamic environment” free of the “evils of modern society”; boys and girls who are attending an Orthodox Jewish school are enrolled in separate classrooms and boys and girls will not be mixing at summer camp; and a Baptist school publishes a “biblical stance on homosexuality, marriage and sexual identity” in its handbook, which would exclude LGBTQ students. (I’m correcting this statement, because the original article didn’t say they would be excluded; it said “a policy that indicates LGBTQ students and staff are not welcome.”–thanks, Mark Camp.)
