take ALL the federal/state taxpayer public school money they can get, as 'vouchers.'

If they can't kill the unions they won't hire union teachers in their private schools.

We've been trying to save billions in text-book costs by starting to use a tablet for every child. Then books can be changed, upgraded much easier, faster and cheaper. we're still on the old 7-9 years for text book up grades.

The usa is very far behind other schools around the world. Many countries don't use text books any more.
