7500 vs 14000 in public schools
allows kids to go to competing private schools

sure, it's at the tax payer's expensive, but if we must cut spending, do we really need to start here?

and what is your general view on such programs, considering they are at the taxpayer's expense. Should states provide this and it be a just system?

It should be the transition from a totally public system to a private system. It is a generally better system, and slowly will decrease education costs for everyone. It should probably be a part of a 20-year phase out of all things big government. That is assuming a peaceful transition.
