"Voucher will just destroy the school system, and do NOTHING to improve education. "
Good. Maybe it needs to be destroyed. And as far as "improving education", there's a REASON why parents want their kids elsewhere -- and that's because the public schools are failing in what they are designed to do.
" It's all based on the myth the private education is better."
You're wrong. It's based on the fact that when presented with a choice, parents will pick the school with the best results IN THEIR AREA. They may have a crappy public school and a less crappy charter or private school and when those are the ONLY choices, you pick the less crappy.
"Even then it's hard to say if its the educational system, or just affluent parents leading to success."
It's easy to say: It's a combination of teachers who must perform, parents who are involved and resources available to the students. With public schools, you are often missing the first two -- and if that's the case, there will NEVER be enough of the third. Nobody has unlimited resources. We need to pull out kids who either cant keep up or are too disruptive and put them where we can focus the extra resources THEY need rather than slowing down or back-peddling the bulk of the student body.
"You want to improve the school system in CA? Get rid of prop 13."
Wrong. Tossing money at the problem at the expense of tax payers (who are already overtaxed in CA) is a solution that has yet to yield results. The "reported" per student cost in CA is grossly under reported. Toss in the bond money (of which CA taxpayers have been extremely generous) and capitol expenses and the per student cost is well between 20k-30k.
BTW, you never answered my question in the previous thread where you suggested I was lying. click me
