John McCain continued his "This is Your Life" tour today in Alexandria, Virginia, and spoke about the need for school vouchers. See below from his speech:
"If a failing school won't change, it shouldn't be beyond the reach of students to change their schools. Parents should be able to send their children to the school that best suits their needs just as Cindy and I have been able to do, whether it is a public, private or parochial school. The result will not be the demise of the public school system in America, but competition that will help make public schools accountable and as successful as they should be in a country as great and prosperous as ours."
McCain has been very consistent on this issue. In the Senate he voted FOR a DC federally funded school voucher program. Supporting school vouchers is part of the resume the McCain camp will pitch to Evangelicals to say, "Hey, the guy is in line with your values."
