    Simply: The issues are that kids with failing schools often don't have the resources to travel to a better school, as many times that school is private and costs money. The school choice people want vouchers from their public school money to go to them so they can take their kids to a private school. What that does is make cash-strapped schools poorer, and worse for the students who can't leave (because the public voucher will not cover the private tuition). So the end result is further disparity for socioeconomic groups.

    The solution is not simply a cash dump either. School reform in the public world is hard... private/charter schools don't have to take all comers like the public schools do, so they quality of the education is not necessarily what is different, it's the quality of student and parent. School reform is too big a topic to cover here. That you really need to google.

    Itís often sold as a way for poor students to get out of underperforming (underfunded) schools by forcing schools to compete for students that have a choice of where they want to go.

    While there is some earnest desire to allow poorer students to be allowed to get out of secular schools and into religious schools, itís really a way for more affluent students to get some of the tax money they have to pay into their local school back to help offset the cost to send their kids to a private (often religious) school. Vouchers donít put students of all socioeconomic status on equal footing making any voucher system a net negative for poor students whoís schools lose funding while the student canít afford the more expensive alternatives.

    At the extremes you have Betsy Devos who wants to end public schooling and open up an opportunity for private enterprise (sheís connected to several private school corporations) to better monetize K-12 education.
