Re: the Dec. 29 article "Yarbrough willing to place caps on tax credits."

As a former public school teacher and administrator, I was interested in reading the article in the Star regarding the school voucher system in Arizona and Sen. Steve Yarbrough's willingness to place caps on tax credits.

How long will it take Arizona's residents to recognize they are using taxpayers' dollars to suppress public education for the purpose of expanding "for profit "minded charter, private, and parochial schools? Many of the these so-called private schools flourish under false pretenses because the have no accountability. Yarbrough and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos should examine their conscience and recognize their ideology is nothing more than another version of school segregation with a profit motive.
