I am very grateful for the excellent July 26 editorial “No ‘victory’ in voucher ruling.” I am both angry and sad at what a majority of our legislators and even our state Supreme Court have done to the detriment of public schools.
I am also deeply disturbed that the legislators and the court have demolished the cherished historical principle of the separation of church and state. Some people may pass the decision off easily because 13 other states are already offering vouchers. North Carolina could be different.
One thing I know is that in future elections for the House and the Senate, I will give more attention to the candidates’ views and actions toward public schools. I urge others to do the same.
