Christie on School Vouchers

Kind of hard to hear.  An article about it can be found here.

This is only for "poor students" as the article makes clear.  Not sure what qualifies a student as "poor" but if the program succeeds it could be a gateway for a more broad voucher program.

The question is would vouchers have any significant impact on tuition in our schools?  I doubt it.  In these times of budget cuts I don't see where the money would come from.  We're better off looking for sources within our community than from Trenton.
