OG: I would seriously look at a voucher system -- charter and magnet schools are growing -- need to look at how we pay for the system. Funding capital expenditures -- different schools competing now for students -- get teacher union costs under control
MF: Must give choice to parents -- would definitely look at vouchers -- look at cost if parent wants to choose other than public school -- everyone must work together so all children are getting the education we expect of them -- our funding system rewards failure, we need to reward success -- future is our children
TF: Vouchers are a form of choice -- I totally support choice -- we passed legislation for charter schools at the push of Obama admin -- opened charter schools in Hartford -- improve quality of teachers and time on task -- money follows the student -- money currently goes to both a charter school student attends and home public school -- waste of money
