Because of the minimal requirements for starting new private schools, if vouchers pass we will have many new ethnically based schools — from LDS to Hispanic and Muslim to polygamist. A large part of the efforts of these schools will be indoctrination in the beliefs and traditions and — yes — the superiority of their ethnicities. The result, even if unintended, will be to accentuate the cultural divide in Utah. Is this what we want?
