The Washington Post reports today that the Florida Supreme Court has rejected the state's voucher plan because the "alternative [school] system" the program establishes is not accountable to the state. The irony is that any system that is perceived to subsidize private schools with taxpayer money will prompt demands for "accountability" and will eventually lead to state domination. Good riddance to the voucher system in Florida. Parents should stop waiting for politicians to rescue their kids from the government's clutches (imagine expecting that to happen!) and just find a way to get their kids out.
