The subhead of your lead article shows why we might need better education (Oct. 25). You state that "$3,000 could cover less than half of typical tuition," giving the impression that vouchers will not be very useful. Then your data table shows that 56 percent of the schools surveyed have tuition of less than $5,000. Then you go on to state that you haven't accounted for discounts at private schools for such things as multiple students from the same family or other subsidies.

C'mon. Vouchers are a good thing. They increase spending per pupil in the public schools while giving parents a choice and financial aid.
