The crowd against school vouchers not only favors Big Education at the expense of little schools, it is also tinkering with religious liberty. In order to secure religious conscience, we must also provide free speech, free assembly and a free press. All this adds up to freedom in education.

If we limit variety in education, we limit the ways citizens can assemble at school, speak in the classroom and publish textbooks. We limit the political and religious rights of those who want reasonable empowerment of all decent viewpoints in society.
