Preston Manning wrote and op-ed calling for a voucher plan to fund schools.
The educational debate in Ontario is narrowly focused on whether to publicly fund one form of alternative education, namely religious schools. The bigger issue is how to expand freedom of choice in education for all Ontario parents, while improving the performance of both public and private schools and ensuring their adherence to provincial educational standards.
The Family Coalition Party would agree with this assessment. The FCP also favours a voucher system. The difference is that he is calling for a voucher totalling 50% of the cost of educating a child in the public system, whereas the FCP is calling for a voucher equivalent to 100% of the cost of educating a child in the public system.
