Local private Catholic Schools demanding more public money.

I have to say from everything I have
read and that’s a lot, Catholic School do a really good job in educating children.
With that being said, I don’t think they should get a dime of public money.
From Redefined Ed: After an unexpected funding shortfall, Florida Catholic
schools want state education leaders to review how one of the state’s biggest
school districts distributed federal dollars earmarked for needy children in
public and private schools.
Why are we
giving private schools that don’t require the same financial transparency, that
don’t have the same accountability and don’t require the certification and
education of public school teachers a dime?
I get it
poor kids go to them but here is the thing, no poor kids are forced to go to
them. Parents already have options if they don’t like the schools that their
kids go to, moving, homeschooling, paying for private schools and getting
involved with their school or school board to change the schools they think are needed. Having the public subsidize their choices to go to private schools takes
money from the families that remain and erodes democracy. Finally if private schools need more
money they should be turning to their parents not to the public for it.
