1010 WINS, CBS affiliate, New York, 28 November 2006, Court Won’t Take School Vouchers Case

Vouchers are championed by the president and many conservatives who call them a ticket out of dismal and dangerous public schools. However, those who champion public education say that vouchers divert already-scarce resources from a system badly in need of repair.
