What makes you think that I believe it would? I also have almost complete conviction that it will never be law nor imposed by the courts by judicial overreach (the only way they could do it). That is why I became a supporter of vouchers about two decades ago. Anything to try to break the current stranglehold that prohibits far too many children from low socioeconomic/education-level communities from having access to a competent, academically challenging environment.
